I dreamed once that I was calmly observing the end of days; I felt peaceful as all the stars descended and caught fire in the night sky. This dream was the inspiration for my handmade, one-of-a-kind End of Days statement ring.

The domed shape makes the ring look like a little snow globe of doom as an asteroid hurtles toward a hapless city below, replete with 24k gold fireball and 14k gold-filled bezel. The ring band and backplate are sterling silver.

I created the enameled scene by "painting" with powdered glass on thin steel using tiny brushes and various scraping tools. I fired the design with a torch to fuse the glass to the metal. I added the fireball by painting with real, liquid 24k gold and then firing again to fuse the gold to the glass.

This piece is part of my Tiny Catastrophes series, a collection of limited edition, one-of-a-kind memento mori pieces that explore the fragility of life and our desire to prevent, explain, and control the uncontrollable.

𝘊𝘩𝘢𝘳𝘪𝘵𝘺⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣Brooch in progress.⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣Vitreous enamel; hand painted, torch fired.⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣This is one of a series of art jewelry pieces incorporating dead, flightless, and falling birds. I designed these pieces to provoke a strong sense of compassion and charity; they are my response to a pervasive callousness, a call for empathy for others. ⁣
