I adore this ring and can’t wait to give it to my significant other. It’s so perfect thank you!

Lyssa turned the making of this ring around in less time than promised but COVID gave it a rough ride through the delivery (international) system (so not her fault at all, as our borders are shut). I am absolutely delighted with this ring - it is beautiful, delicate and well made! I found it through her YouTube channel where she makes a stunning and eclectic range of work and is a great channel to get lost in for an hour or two!

This seller is amazing. I have rings from her that I have been wearing almost daily for years. Pictured is all four of them, along with a fifth ring I usually wear them with. PS. if they look a bit too tight, my hand is slightly swollen from recent cooking misshape that resulted in me burning the top of my hand. They are very true to size and normally fit quite well.

Lyssa is a dream to work with! I got her single banded pomegranate ring originally and as she promised it held up through a move and me being clumsy with my hands. Of course, after my move, I lost my ring, and so asked her to do another one for me, this time with a double band, and she came through! She really worked to make sure that I loved the ring and was happy with the final product. I will absolutely be purchasing from her again, and be recommending her jewelry. They look dainty and cute (perfect for stacking rings) but they’re built to last!

I’m obsessed with the idea that an object can be more than the sum of its parts. I take words from literature, video games, and pop culture and turn them into pieces of wearable art. The words become part of the piece and turn it into a talisman, hopefully giving the wearer a little boost through the day.
I primarily work in silver and bronze metal clay, which I craft by hand—carving, hammering, soldering, and polishing—until each piece tells a vivid story. I started my journey in order to bring to life some of the beautiful images I saw in books; each piece a reminder of a passage. Some are chosen for their meaning, like the fox from The Little Prince. Some are chosen because the imagery is lovely, like pomegranates from the myth of Persephone. Like all literary mediums, the more you pay attention to the detail and subtle beauty, the more enjoyable each piece will become.
I believe that intentionality is everything and that good thoughts will create good actions. By creating jewelry imbued with words of friends, love, and humor, I try to make the world a little more beautiful.
