Hollow hand-formed silver ring, called Seed for the seam that indicates the interior of the piece. It is a hollow pod that surrounds your finger with potential. Its a great place to store your intentions.
Made from recycled sterling silver, this ring was hand formed using traditional metalsmithing techniques invented for making goods like teapots and cutlery. The ring starts out as a flat piece of silver sheetmetal and is formed around graduated sizes of indentations on a forming tool with a variety of specialty hammers. The process is called anticlastic hollow forming.
The silver is textured, oxidized, and tumbler polished to create a darker silvery sheen that looks better the more you wear it.
This design is available in many sizes, but more sizes can be requested by special order. Contact me to request a different size and I'll be happy to accommodate you!
Handcrafted in a Nicasio, California studio.
