CUSTOM ORDER JEWELRY
This ring is made of sterling silver made by hand in my workshop.
This ring is really one of a kind. It represents the silhouette of a rabbit. It stopped after a long run in the fields. He needed to stop and breathe. It is decorated with tiny vegetal patterns that were handmade: grass, plants and a dandelion.
This bunny was hand cut and was then soldered on another sterling silver sheet. It was then oxidized to remind of the chilly night and was then cut in a freeform shape to symbolize plants around this animal.
This is a very poetic ring that will make sense to countryside animal lovers and of rabbits in general.
Kaninchen means Rabbit in German language. I chose this language to translate the word rabbit because it is the country that has originated the famous Easter rabbit. There are mainly two explanations. The rabbit has always been a symbol of fertility and renewal (like spring) and was the pet of Ostara, goddess of dawn and spring. This is the name that would have given the German word for Easter, Ostern.
It also presents the legend of a poor woman who hid eggs she had painted in the garden because she could not afford to offer another gift. The children saw a rabbit through the garden imagined that it is him who had laid these eggs. Therefore, they fabricated a nest in the garden for the bunny meets every year.
Size: 5 1/2 (US). It cannot be resized.
The ring is 0.3 cm wide (0.118 inches).
The plant rabbit is 2.7 x 2 cm (1.063 x 0.787 inches).
