The Oryx Ring

$385.00Price

>>>SILVER•FAUNA<<<

The silver section of Eastern Winds, inspired by the fauna of the Savannah. You can't have an ode to Eastern Africa without showcasing the wildlife that makes the lands feel so full and rich. Excited to share with you these creatures less celebrated, but endlessly deserving! ðŸ…🌞✨

 

Turning my photographs from this trip into metal has been one of the most rewarding artistic collaborations of my interests. It's truly hard to put into words. But making these vignettes has been truly a pleasure <3

 

For this piece, I recreated the face of one of the most exciting to me antelopes, the East African Oryx (oryx beisa). His high contrast marking proudly displayed, and his very tall horns every so slightly curved to fit around the "stone", holding a more reddish brown feather from an Egyptian Goose. The ring face surrounded in a  half round sterling vignette frame. Set on a double half round split band, with stamp detailing congruent to designs seen throughout the collection.

 

The pendant measures 1 1/2" tall and 3/4" wide. 

It is a size 8.

The piece weighs .33 oz.

  • >>> The Eastern Winds Collection <<<

    A three part, mixed metal collection, five years in the making. Inspired by a month I spent in August of 2017, with my mother, in Kenya and Tanzania. A huge trip we shared in both celebration and mourning. It was life changing. I came home and drew this collection, although initially much larger... but then my life changed again. Everything was put on hold. This collection (and the handful of copper pieces I made first) all were tabled in the corner of my studio ever since. 

    Now, after all these years of working on other aspects of my life, it finally became clear I was ready to finish what I started, and to clear those cobwebs from my memory, and cast these idea back into the wind. 

     

    The copper/vulture, the brass/sun, and silver/fauna sections, now a whole collection. Set with African Vulture feathers, Egyptian Geese feathers, life casted Wildebeest teeth, and sparkling Raw Tanzanian Sunstone, all found in the wilds of the Serengeti. Images created in metal from photographs I personally took. Inspired by textiles I've decorated my studio with. I'm so thrilled to release this deeply personal, cathartic, and now, only joy filled, collection with you all! 🐅🌞✨
