This is a very special ring, and dear to my heart. As with all my jewellery, I spend many hours and days making each piece by hand. The detail that you see in the ring is evocative of the our beautiful Australian landscape in particular honeycomb rock formations found in our Australian deserts. The ring is comfortable to wear.
Please visit my blog at http://katrinanewman.com/2012/01/03/olga/ for more information on this piece.

Size 54 (N or 7) weight 23 grams. The ring is 4.5mm thick at the widest point.

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

Even lovelier than in the photos. Quality, beautifully made. Definitely my new favourites. They arrived so quickly. I bought two pairs of earrings and am so glad I did. Will definitely buy more from this seller.

Really thrilled with how well these are made. I love how the spots on both earrings are just a little different. They are like two little pieces of art hanging on my ears. They can look relaxed or very elegant depending on the outfit I wear them with. I am going to wear these a lot. Definitely going to buy more from this seller. Super happy with how quickly they arrived.

These earrings are even better in real life. I love not only the shape of the earrings, but also the beautiful pattern and marbling effects on the glass. Great purchase overall.
