Gold Rings




I've been wanting to work with gold for a long time.  It kind of came to a tipping point when I saw this piece, which is probably in my top ten favorite artworks of all time.  I got lucky over the holidays when I found a pair of my mom's earrings that had been stepped on and bent pretty irreversibly (well, they probably could have been fixed but I liked my idea better) so I brought them home and proceeded to make a ring out of them.  I know it's fairly crude, but that's really what I like about it.  Now I can wear it with my other gold ring that looks like something else, and they look perfectly innocuous together in a stack.

  1. I like your gold rings. I sent something to you and lock via snail mail yesterday.
