Finally finished my ring, "Trouble With Lichen", made from the corroded push-rods of a Ford Fairlane, found in a river at Campo Ligure, Italy. It is not a typical piece. I think that this is because I did almost no preparatory drawings for it and it came almost directly from the form of the material and the stones chosen for it.


The cups are set with tsavorite and demantoid garnets and a natural brown diamond.




The back is set with nephrite jade and a peridot.


There are also a spessarite garnet, a chrome tourmaline and an andalusite set amongst the granules.

I see exactly what you mean. It is almost like bagpipes as seen by Dr Seuss!
