Ring – Om Is Where The Heart Is

My Art Rings are riveted onto sterling silver bands. The bowl toppers are part or my series “I used to be a hot water cylinder”.

Circles are cut out of old hot water cylinders, then hammered (and HAMMERED!!) into a bowl shape. Some are riveted on before decorating, some are riveted towards the end of the embellishment process.

“Om is where the heart is” has text layered under low fired enamel and pigments, then pure silver wire was wound and riveted to attach it to the band.

The underside of the bowl is pigmented black and waxed with the natural copper patina showing through.

The size is average for a woman, I wear these on my middle finger as they are quite heavy so need to be firm to keep the ring stable.

I’ll post the exact size shortly.
