CUSTOM ORDER JEWELRY
This ring is made of sterling silver (925) made by hand in my workshop.
This ring was winter inspired. A dendritic agate is surrounded by tiny sterling silver leaves and tiny silver balls symbolizing holly berries. The agate reminds me of a desert winter landscape.
Holly is a plant whose symbolism was important for many civilizations.
For Roman, it symbolized the good wishes, congratulations for an important event. That is why Holly was offered to newlyweds.
For the Greeks, it gave foresight.
Celtic and Gallic Druids believed that the sun never left holly leaves because they survived to winter. This plant was sacred and they kept holly leaves in their house during the winter to help the spirits of nature finding a refuge.
In the popular tradition, holly protected from evil spirits like witches and lightning. If planted around the house, it would protect the resident.
This ring is really one of a kind.
