Inspired by the Chinese Astrological year of the Water Rabbit. For me, this relates in snowy landscapes and shadow dances, magic and hope in a very long Montana winter.
This piece is a gorgeous cut of Ocean Jasper from my main man Merlin down in Livingston. He didn't understand my draw to this muted Jasper when I picked it, and thought maybe I should pick out something more colorful. But there's something mysterious about the tones of this stone. Something so very...Wintry.
Piece is set in Fine and Sterling Silver on 20 gauge patterned backplate, an ode to icy winter and snowy landscapes. Ring shank is a 'c-style' double-round, 5mm wide. Fits comfortably like a size 7.5-7.75. My signature coin is nestled in on the backside.
OOAK for February 2023.
