Concave Sterling Silver Band with Engraved Design
Entirely hand-crafted. One-of-a-kind.

I have been experimenting with textures lately... And I have created a new way to create amazing textures in metal. I first hand-engrave a piece of copper sheet. Then I take the silver I am going to work with, lye it on top of the copper sheet, and pass it through my hand-cranked laminating machine together. The pressure of this hand-cranked laminator, makes the copper press it's texture into the Silver. The result is an amazing, one-of-a-kind texture on the Silver.

The style of this ring is known as 'anticlastic' (meaning concave in shape). Anticlastic is a process by which metal is formed by the use of polished hammers and plastic mallets of various sizes and shapes. All of my anticlastic forming is done using steel hammers on plastic stakes or plastic mallets on steel stakes. The reflection of light off of the curved surfaces contributes to the feeling of motion, and while for many people wide-band rings are uncomfortable to wear, anticlastic rings fit and feel like narrow rings.

This Silver band is approximately 7mm wide--the texture goes all the way around the ring.
I have oxidized this ring, giving the ring an 'antique' look.

As with all of my work, this ring is entirely hand-made. I use no moulds in my work--no 'castings.' You can be sure that this ring is a one-of-a-kind, made using traditional silversmith techniques.
