This piece is unset and unfinished so it may be finished in your ring size of choice.
Inspired by my recent trip to the V&A museum in London where I saw a wealth of Art Nouveau treasures with my own eyes, I set about to make my own take of organicfin de sieclejewelry. The result was my sculpt of the 'Dryad' face, my imagining of a wood nymph's visage from antiquity.
This piece is one from my first collection turningmy 'Dryad' design into jewelry reminiscent of Art Nouveau treasures. I have paired each piece in this collection with a gemstone that glittered or flashed, to symbolise light dancing light inside a forest, in whose dappled play I fancy we can see the spirits of the trees.
Here she is incarnated into a ring. Set into her forehead is a wonderfully chatoyant labradorite gemstone, catching light and flashing back a beautiful ghostly blueness, as if lit from within. The ring as shown is as yet unfinished and unset, so it can be made to your size of choice. It will be finished on a comfortable two-band ring, to bear its weight while being easy on the finger and staying wearable.
This focal was cast in solid sterling, making it a weighty ring of mighty consequence. It is waiting for its warrior queen to come and claim it and ride it to battle against the mundane.

*Since my divination skills are rusty... remember to give me your ring size (standard US or UK ring sizes only please) in the 'notes to seller' box on checkout. It's best if you give me your actual ring size and don't compensate for ring band width or focal size and such - if in doubt, shoot me an email after purchase.
