Description

Sheets of silver and different colored golds are fused together at high temperatures then hammer formed to create a rugged but sensitive textural pattern. It is heat treated to deepen the color, forming a patina that is reliably tougher than chemical oxidation.

This is a process based in a sophisticated manipulation of the melting temperatures of different combinations of metals and is not for the faint hearted!

This ring is 9mm in width but could be made to any width.

Upon receiving an order i will send a message to confirm the size and give details of the inscription, which depending on the size can be around twenty five symbols long.

OPTIONAL INSCRIPTION - Bear in mind that i consider an inscription on the inside of the ring to be an integral part of the piece that makes it more personal and that bit more unique. It is therefore included in the given price. The inscription is engraved freehand in a style that suits the ring. As it is not generically stamped any symbols can be submitted.


Fusing silver and gold is a process of controlling the melting points of the various metals so that they melt into each other while still retaining their basic shape. This generally results in an organic textural look and as it is never entirely under control it adds a strong element of chance and a unique individuality.

Note that the processes used to form this ring make it unique and another would by nature have slight differences even though i would be working towards the same general finish.


Artists statement:
As with all my work i strive to create an object which is both unique and timeless.
Not of any particular culture, place or period but a curiosity of unknown origin with its own
integrity and strength of character that becomes one with the wearer.

I melt, roll and forge all the metals i use into the wires and sheet that are needed for the particular piece i am making.

Gold is used not for its traditional association with wealth and riches but for the essential qualities that allow for it to be worked in interesting ways. Gold can be fused, beaten and rolled into the surface of other metals and is resistant to acids. I love the superb highlights of golden glow that brings a silver surface alive .

Many of the tools i use are themselves handmade by toolsmiths i have sought out in the bazaars and backstreets of the old world. I find these tools more comfortable than modern manufactured ones.

They have a voice, all their own, and they take turns to sing in my hands.

    My fiance and I just received his ring and it is absolutely beautiful while being masculine at the same time. Irini patiently helped us with some questions we had, and gave us very good, accurate advice so we could make a decision. The ring is of exceptional quality and the size was a perfect fit.

    The ring I ordered from irini and Jim for my surprise proposal is absolutely beautiful. The customer service I received from them has been outstanding. They have been so helpful every step of the way from helping me with sizing to making sure that the ring was with me in time. I can’t thank them enough for being a part of my special occasion.
