Sterling silver “wood” slice with cubic zirconia. Vector drawn, hand forged, hammered and engraved. Part of a series of wood slices I’ve been developing. I relate to the relationship between our lives and the rings of a tree. You can learn everything about the life of a tree from a slice, and I like the idea of mapping our life experiences in these unique tree slices. The stone represents a single, affecting moment.
Another view of the ring, shot on a piece of fossilized whale bone.
Just a shot of the ring on my bench pin
This image shows how the wood slices start, as melted “blobs” of sterling silver that I then forge.
