fold & twist rings

fold & twist rings

The second part of the multiple project was creating a jewel out of a 10x10cm silver plate but no other additional material. I decided to create rings but instead of the traditional method of making a ring I decided to mill the silver plate into a certain thickness and use it to make thin rings with a focal point on top through folding and twisting the silver. The idea was that you could choose between different motives on top and also if you want a double or single ring. I chose one motive – the diamond – to demonstrate the possibilities of this method and to show the beauty of silver. The simple silver diamond works as an eyecatcher, instead of the normally used stones as a centerpiece.
