One of a Kind Gray Mother of Pearl Ring with a Faceted Red Garnet. It is set in Sterling Silver. On the back is a screen texture. The top of the ring measures one inch in diameter and the Garnet is 4mm.
The ring is a Size 8.5. If you need it smaller or larger reach out and I'll make one especially for you.
The Mother of Pearl piece is an Antique Button from a button factory that went out of business. I was drawn to this darker Mother of Pearl because is in the family of gray shells I collected as a child. I really liked collecting a variety of shapes, sizes, and colors. You can see some of the grays I collected in the gallery of photos to the left.
The screen texture is a symbol of my memories of the Gulf House. When it was storming there were often high winds blowing through the house. Sometimes when this happened the screens would make noise. They made a sort of a whizzing sound. I have a vivid memory of that sound. Sleeping there, so close to nature, feeling the wind blow over me, listening to the harmony of the wind and the screens was very calming. Nothing but me and Mother Nature.
It is my wish that when worn this ring will remind you of all things beachy - shells, sand, breeze (even high winds), waves, walks, and most of all calm.
