Perforated surfaces are found throughout architecture from old lattice-works in the Middle East to modern buildings in the West. I thought it would be great to apply to smaller scale jewelry designs and this Inverted Hearts Ring is part of a series of perforated jewelry.
The ring is constructed out of bronze-infused Stainless Steel that is formed by an additive layer by layer process known as 3D Printing*. I designed the ring to taper and have a break on the bottom which I've found makes a more comfortable fit. The ring has a texture as a result of the 3D printing process which gives it a modern industrial look which is contrasted by the heart design. (Note: the camera picks up much more texture than is visible to the eye.)
The ring band measures roughly 1/2 inch in width and is slightly tapered so the bottom of the ring is narrower.

*Please note that 3D printed items are not mass produced but are "one-offs" that vary to some degree in texture & color (similar to items that are entirely handmade). For bronze infused Stainless Steel the same design can have prints that vary from a greyish pewter to a pale bronze toned- silver.
