Gorgeous clear agate, with an incredible and super sparkly druzy canyon.....*sigh*, this one will be hard to give up. It was also very difficult to really capture just how shimmering the the crystals in the druzy are with my camera, you will have to trust me on this one.

I've had this stone in my possession for quite a while, and never quite knew what I wanted it to become. Suddenly, it came to me while I was sketching, and made it my top priority to fabricate this lunar landscape into something glowing for the finger of the perfect person. I hand formed the fine silver bezel, sterling silver backing and shank on this honker of a cocktail ring. The lower left-hand side of the edge has some delicate scalloping, symbolizing the eclipse between the dark and light side of the moon.

This ring is the nineteenth in my Ailette series. As the pieces in this series took shape beneath my fingers, they reminded me of medieval armour...scarred and battered...yet still radiating with a rough beauty. This series has evolved with each new piece, and she (I say 'she' because we are STRONG women!) reminds me of a worn and aged piece of precious shield-like armour.

The entire ring was oxidized for color and effect, given some soft scarring 'battle wounds', and then treated with a polished wax protectant finish to preserve the rich color for years to come. Over time, the patina will deepen and become even more rich and beautiful. The very bottom of the ring shank may lose some of the dark patina tone, since that is where it will come into contact with other objects that your hand will grab and hold the most, but this only adds to the beauty of this ring. It is intended to look slightly aged and worn from the beginning, I've created it with the timeless look in mind.

Dimensions - 1.65" round

This item is One Of A Kind!!!

Ring Size - 8 and cannot be adjusted in my studio. If you have any concerns regarding the ring size prior to placing an order, please contact me and I can direct you to an online ring sizing chart.




FYI - The band around my ring finger in the photos is my wedding band tattoo...NOT a discoloration from any metals that I use for jewelry! I only use sterling silver for my rings, and when I do incorporate brass or copper into my work, it is finished with a lacquer sealant or a special wax, to help prevent discoloration of skin.
