I just read about these ancient pieces found in Israel from
www.jckonline.com
and it reminded me of a piece I conjured up this Summer! At least the 8 point star is similar. My ring is of recycled silver and is Tufa cast.
Simplicity is evident into this 1" "wheel" of gem silica chrysocolla and chocolate leather.

About

Living on the Earth, making Art

My name is Bob Borter and I design and make all of the jewelry, gemstones and beads you’ll find in my shop utilizing sustainable practices including the use of recycled materials.

My reasons for making jewelry in the manner I do include the belief that when we experience a poignant work of art, we experience the same spirit that motivates the artist. For this reason I have rejected making my jewelry in any manner that does not connect my hands with each gemstone I cut and every piece of jewelry I create. Essential for this artist to connect with the creative spirit are the hammers, anvils and flames associated with the ancient traditions of metal forging and casting.

I tend to make mostly one of kind pieces utilizing traditional metal smithing practices that require a high degree of concentration and focus on the moment; this practice allows the creative spirit to take over; the tools and the hands communicate and drive the process providing intuitive designs, techniques and revelations deep within my creative experience.

Creating contemporary art jewelry, wedding rings, engagement rings and meaningful jewelry for thousands of clients in the U.S. and around the world for nearly 40 years, my work has been worn in tribal dances, featured on the cover of German Vogue and represented in some of the most influential galleries in New York City, including Robert Lee Morris’s Artwear.
Today, with my apprentices we continue the traditions of the ancient metal smiths and designers that have paved the way for centuries and create meaningful adornment.
