Vine Ring :: Ring A Week No. 14
This week, I made a ring featuring my vine motif. The vine design was etched into sterling silver and I then carefully cut around portions of the delicate vine above and below band lines. As with many of my pieces, I've oxidized this ring to provide contrast and highlight the design. I made the first ring featuring this motif last fall, which you can see below. I chose to cut the first ring quite differently, leaving wide, angled margins around the etched vine, which achieves a very different effect. I was pleasantly surprised by how delicate the new ring looks.
