Description

Inspired by Music and Synaesthesia

I am synaesthetic, which is a neurological trait where my senses cross.  Therefore I have a strong visual impression of shape, colour, movement and sometimes texture when I hear music.  This Snow Quartz Silver Ring is inspired by what I see when I listen to an electric guitar. The electric guitar is silver, greys and whites and is represented here by the sterling silver. The icy chunk of quartz perfectly compliments the colours I see in the guitar playing. It is made from two pieces of hand-forged silver riveted together to ensure the stone stays secure.

Recycled Silver

Mining silver is an environmentally invasive process, so I use recycled silver in all my work. The sterling silver I used to make this Snow Quartz Silver Ring comes from old and broken silverware and cutlery. Consequently, I can eliminate the need for newly mined silver in my work. I melted a piece of old silverware down. Then I hand forged the resulting ingot of molten silver into this Snow Quartz Silver Ring. This ring has a full UK Hallmark which guarantees it is sterling silver. For more on hallmarking and to see an image of my hallmark see my FAQ
