This beautiful sterling silver statement ring is evocative of the Australian landscape and our stunning dessert, and unique desert formations. You will certainly make a statement when wearing this ring at any function that you choose.

This ring was created from a cuttlefish cast mold prepared and cast by me. Following the casting I spent many hours cutting back the grainy and rough cuttlefish texture to a smooth and polished finish.

Size 52 (L or 6) weight 20 grams. The ring is 3.5mm thick at the widest point.

If you like this ring and it is not your size I can alter the size to make it larger. Please contact me to discuss.

If you would like to visit my studio to try it on and to see other pieces available for sale, please contact me to arrange a time. My studio is always open by appointment.

This ring has been made using the ancient technique of Cuttlefish casting. The process of Cuttlefish casting involves taking a cuttlefish bone found on the beach, I cut it in two and carve out a basic design, and a funnel. I then rejoin the two halves and melt sterling silver until it is molten and pour it quickly into the mould. The mould crackles and cooks. After cooling I open the mould to see if I have made a successful cast. I then take the crude form back to my bench where I spend many hours filing and emerying before polishing and finally presenting it for sale. Many hidden hours goes into my cuttlefish cast jewellery.
More details about the process including videos can be found on my website http://katrinanewman.com or my Instagram page katrinanewmangoldsilversmith.
