Sterling silver ring – Unusual

This is my latest ring.
I wanted to create smaller and simplest ring than I usually do.
Just band and purple Swaroysky crystal…
But I have changed my mind during the production…. I heated a peace of silver wire trying to make round ball.
When I was done I find out that on the other side of the ball there was a small hole perfect for my purple Swarowski crystal.
This is really one of kind ring.

Mother Earth in Universe
handmade sterling silver ring with new jade bead.

When I start creating a ring like this one I’m never quite sure what the outcome will be.
First I put my idea on the paper and let the magic flow… however, sometimes something brings me further then I imagined… and this is what happened this time too…

Top of the ring is made of 2 soldered parts (0,5 mm thin) with „black hole“ between.
Mother Earth is jade, pale green, placed on half sphere pedestal resisting and still moving… top surface is mate.

about me…

my name is Zdravka Radić. I come from Croatia, Europe.
My love for jewellery and passion for creative work, slowly started as pale shadow within my hoby activities, but very quickly continued rising in me as a clear light that gives me strenght for exploring the new and unknown every day…

I developed my skills at Public Open University Zagreb.
My creations are simple, modern and wearable. I love the saying that less is more.
Although my first love is silver, from time to time I use other materials like polimer clay, textile, or a peace of wood found on the shore….
