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.

No piece of corroded iron is overlooked!
