Overlay Flower Ring
Dainty, delicate, and delicious – that sums up this lovely ring.
Intensely feminine, it features an overlaid silver flower (a wild rose?) that has been textured in two ways.
The base layer is finely chiseled, and the top layer is finely hammered; both are polished to a pretty shimmer.
A tiny dome of silver sits in the center, also hammered.
The shank is chiseled in a vertical pattern, suggesting rainfall. Rain makes flowers bloom and is a good luck symbol.
This charming ring is a beautiful example of the artist’s combination of traditional themes and techniques, with personal, modern design.
The workmanship is precise and fastidious, the design is delightful, and the result is enchanting.
Only a size 4 1/2, it makes a beautiful pinkie ring.
If your fingers are larger, it can also be sized up a bit.
