I have been experimenting this spring with some variations on ring designs as well as making some rings in silver/ 14k gold combinations. While I don't usually stock rings in gold, these styles are always available by custom order. The rings on the right of the photo are custom wedding bands for a couple roll-printed with a pattern taken from the topographical map of their favorite hiking spot. These bands are anticlastic formed and I think they are an awesome twist on the traditional…unique and one-of-a-kind!

I just completed another "Ode to Frida Kahlo" cuff bracelet, this one with a beautiful chrysocolla stone that looks like planet earth! This is the 6th in the "Frida" cuff series. Each cuff is a little different. The series is inspired by Frida Kahlo and the Mexican "Dia de Los Muertes", Day of the Dead. The side of the cuff features a quote from Frida's last painting, "Viva la Vida" or "Long Live Life".
|Completed cuff: Sterling silver, 14k gold, chrysocolla.|
