Giant Silver Ring with a Ruby

  • July 8, 2013 6:39 PM

Last month I took a few days off to Berlin in Germany, and among many other beautiful places I have visited there, I took a little stroll through a small Artists market.  There were many lovely items in small stands there. Oil paintings beside antique drawings, handmade dolls made of felt, vintage clothes  and such.  Of course my favorite stands were those of the handmade jewelry artists.

One of the items I loved most were a collection of rings made of metal with various stones in them. One of the rings, which I fell in love with immediately, was a large dark flower with a yellow amber set on it. I tried it on, and although I have small hands it surprisingly looked as if I wore a large flower on my hand.Of course I immediately wanted to buy it, but when the seller told me the price and I did not have that much cash on me, I thought to myself: ” Make one of your own!”.

And so I did.

I did not photograph it, but let the idea  remain in my mind. Last week I decided to make one of my own. I took a large piece of flat Sterling Silver and spontaneousely hammered it to the shape of a large tropical flower. As it is the month of July, and July’s birthstone, I  picked out a natural oval Ruby gemstone from my stone collection and set it in the middle. Here is the result:
