This ring is made from genuine New York City street dirt- the dirty kind of dirt- set in sterling silver. Completely handmade and totally waterproof- your dirt jewelry will not turn to mud!

I first started creating dirt jewelry after completion of an extensive diamond setting class in midtown Manhattan. As I sat diamondlessly at my jewelers bench, I looked out my window for inspiration. Trying not to stare directly at the lady across the street doing dishes, I noticed the fluttering leaves of the potted ivy plant on my fire escape. I looked at the mound of dirt at its base and felt a little sorry for it. Why shouldn't dirt get a little time in the spotlight?

Now I get my dirt from the street. I walk around the city with my little sister, and we scoop up dirty dirt (wearing rubber gloves) and put it in little baggies to bring back to the Saru Star studio.

This listing is for one dirt ring with a double setting of dirt (as shown in the second picture).
