A drowned sparrow is washed ashore in this statement-sized cocktail ring.
• Size 8
• Fine silver, sterling silver ring band, brass setting, 23.5k gold foil bird
• Ring face measures approximately 2” x 1.25”
• Chase & repousse (limited edition cast replica of my original)
• Keum-boo, etched, hand fabricated
The motif of flightless and felled birds has recurred in my memento mori work throughout the pandemic; these sad symbols represent a heaviness of spirit and a call for empathy in our current times.
