Finger Print Ring in Silver


This is Ali's Silver Fingerprint Ring that I made for her to match her mother's ring. I took another picture of it on rotten wood... This is the moment when I invented the squished wax ring technique. I've made lots of them out of silver now, a few of them out of gold, some of them out of brinze and just one of them out of bronze. They are terrific becuase you have the fingerprints of the person who made them in the ring and it gives them a literal personal touch and a fantastic texture. I leave them matt when I pass them on but the slowly shine up with time and wear and its so nice to have your jewellery kind of grow up.
