Mermaid Band in Sterling Silver
Mermaids are one of my favorite mythical creatures. The idea of swimming deep in the sea through coral reefs with all the colorful fish, mollusks and octopus is a dream I strive to express in my work. Scales are a beautiful shimmering texture found on so many living creatures in the sea, it only seems natural to wrap them around the finger. Each scale is handcarved in wax, and the inside of the band is rounded over for the most comfortable fit. Cast using the lost wax method, this ring is then cleaned up and textured with a stipple wheel. The last step is to apply a black patina, and polish it back to deepen the texture of the scales.
