Description

"Got a whale of a tale to tell you, lads.
A whale of a tale or two.
'Bout the flapping fish and the girls I've loved,
On nights like this with the moon above.
A whale of a tale and it's all true--
I swear by my tattoo." ***

My brother and I had a VCR copy of '20,000 Leagues Under the Sea' when we were kids and we watched it countless times. I always thought the submarine was supercool, but the giant squid needed work (granted, the movie was made in the 50s). I put a little of my idealized undersea monster in this design but softened the edges up with a little art-nouveau styling. I've been looking at a lot of Japanese woodcuts lately as well, and I feel like some of this also seeped into the design.

This ring is a highly detailed piece with the squid and water/wave design flowing all the way around the ring, leaving no particular part "up." It is a nice 8mm in width, over 2mm thick, and has a delicious weighty feel.

This ring is hand carved by me in wax using pointy tools and then cast using the lost-wax method.

I have this ring currently priced for 14K gold (white or yellow). I can make this ring using 18K or 14K white, yellow, or rose gold. Or palladium white gold (14K or 18K) for the nickel sensitive (please send me a convo for additional quotes). A description of all metals is here: http://blog.cheyenneweil.com/f-a-q/#12

Width = 8mm
Overall thickness = ~2.15mm
Size = ~8-11 (convo me to check additional sizes--I can probably do it)
