Inspired by the highly complex bands of crowns and diadems of various cultures, this ring is set with garnets hemmed in with carved motifs. The aesthetic is simplified from the original patterns and styles in order to bring them into the modern age and create a piece suitable for everyday wear whilst retaining the eye catching quality of a symbol of status.
Handmade with traditional techniques including a slight matte finish to better exhibit the patterning and lustre of the garnets.
Jonathan draws his inspiration from the varied clients and pieces he encounters to make jewellery and vessels that reflect both the past and future of design.
He also humbly aspires, after the ancient craftsman Bezalel, to express the spiritual through ability and intelligence, knowledge and craft.
Garnet, Sterling silver
