Three Post-Apocalyptic Cocktail Rings

These were amongst the first of my iron pieces. The idea for these cocktail rings came from a visit to a derelict garage in Glasgow. Amongst the debris of wrecked cars, tyres and gas-cylinders, were champagne bottles, a discarded shoe, a broken glass and a soggy feather boa... an apocalyptic cocktail party to which I had not been invited.

Made from corroded table leg, silver, green CZ, garnets, a very pale citrine, pale amethyst, blue topaz, garnets, rusted iron conduit, peridot, tourmalines and a lemon citrine.

I love how you fabricate such amazing, precious jewelry from objects that most of us overlook.

No piece of corroded iron is overlooked!

You have elevated the corroded table leg in my mind.  Now if I could just find one and then figure out how to cut it.
