The beautiful slice of Indonesian opalized wood used in this ring looks like a sand-swept landscape rising to meet a blue sky. It is set on a hand-textured sterling silver base plate, creating a rugged beauty that catches the light perfectly. The incredible color of the opal wood is set off with my signature 18k gold accent beads. The band is made from heavy-gauge, sterling silver half-round wire that has been heavily hammmered, measuring ~6mm or 0.25" wide.

Indonesian opalized wood is created when wood is buried by volcanic ash and silica is mobilized from the ash, penetrating the wood and replacing the wood grains, thereby petrifying them. The silica is often accompanied by other minerals that give the stone a wide range of colors: red, green, and purple colors are usually from iron; pink, black, and brown coloration is from manganese; and blues and greens are from copper.

Size 6.5 (rings can be stretched up to ~1 size larger)

 

A Note About My Jewelry


I create powerful, unique, and sacred adornment crafted from Earth's finest gifts. All of my jewelry is hand-made and hand-finished, from natural and often recycled or repurposed materials. I try to use every bit of metal on my bench and not let anything go to waste. In this way, all my pieces are somehow related - melted, remelted, cut, recut, weaving together so many stories being told through the jewelry. No two items are exactly alike and my pieces will have natural imperfections - I believe it is these slight imperfections that give hand fabricated items their soulful character and appeal.
