A luscious lilac bloom features in this large, statement ring.

This entirely handmade, sterling silver band ring is textured with a subtle star-embossed surface. The concave tin is set into the solid silver as if it were a stone. The band is invisible wire riveted AND silver soldered onto the setting. The round face is 3cm diameter (1 1/4 inch). The tin was sawn out and formed in my homemade hydraulic press and templates.

There is also the added benefit of this ring being a comfortable adjustable fit...open it up bigger for your finger by prising the aperture carefully, or gently but firmly squeeze the opening tighter for a smaller fit. Whatever the size, keep it that size, the metal becomes work hardened and doesn't want to keep changing it's mind. It will happily become any size between a UK "I" and"R".
