I wrote a poetic little “eye witness” account of a tornado and etched it into the band of this one-of-a-kind enameled ring. It reads, "The leaves stood, as if called to God."

My blizzard ring, "Abandoned" is available for purchase online, along with several of my other pieces, at the @metalmuseumstore website. The ring features my one-of-a-kind enameled scene of a car buried in the Ohio Blizzard of 78.
