Loving the Original Bread n' Butters, but need just ONE more? Did you lose one behind the washing machine? Are a few at the bottom of the Flathead River? Did you give away all your stacks to your besties and now feel naked? I got you!
NOW you can get JUST ONE, or JUST TWO, or whatever was missing from your Original Bread N Butter Stacks....or you can wear just one for the simple statement. I have one I slipped on my pinkie in 2010 and I don't think it comes off.
Sterling Silver. 18 gauge wire is soldered, hammered, and brushed for a nice matte shine. Rings will shine brightly the more you wear them, bathe in them, and never take them off.
Hammered with SO MUCH LOVE in my Northwest Montana studio!
The story of the stack: I was just a student, struggling to find my voice. I had tried my hand at Art school, Liberal Arts, Outdoor Education, even WWOOFer Farming....all just landed....sorta flat. I enrolled in 2008 at the community college in the valley, and would immediately fall in love with metal. It's an affair that continues to be just true love.
In the throes of school, I was also bartending, gardening, waiting tables, did a short stint as a housekeeper, ALL the things young 20-somethings do to pay the bills. I was broke. BUT. A friend of mine offered to commission 60 individual thin rings for her trip to Burning Man. Apparently, there's no currency, but TRADE was the ticket, so she intended on trading her stack rings for goods and things through her weekend in the desert. I took the job, made the rings, and friends who knew her, and friends of mine, started asking for them....regularly. I started offering them as a set of 6, and took them to the Farmers Markets....for YEARS! They ended up being the glue (and the funds!) I needed to get my fledgling studio and business off the ground.
And after that, they became my 'Bread n' Butter' Stacks. Because, truly, they fed me.
