CUSTOM ORDER JEWELRY
This ring is made of sterling silver (925) made by hand in my workshop and of brass.
This sterling silver and brass ring is really one of a kind. It was inspired by the Pre-Hispanic civilization of the Mayas. I engraved on a brass sheet the Mayan glyph of the sun. The sun is a fundamental element of Mayan religion and mythology. It is an important basis for cosmology. They considered that we were on the fifth sun since the beginning of human creation.
The original brass Maya pattern, representing the sun, was then cut to accentuate the outline and soldered on a silver sheet to give more dimension and play on the contrast of colors. I then decorated it with little silver balls and petals giving it a delicate and romantic look.
It is artisan etched. The etching process takes times but the result allows appreciating the intricate and delicate patterns. The bas relief effect is really nice. Shiny finish.
Etching is an artisanal process which produces a unique design each time I use it. Two pieces with a same design will never be exactly the same by the hazards of the process. Each detail makes a unique piece.
US size is 6 1/2.
Surface: 3.3 x 2 cm (1.299 x 0.787 inches).
