Shiny Red Stones

I am learning that everyone wants a shiny red stone... I have had three separate requests for silver rings with big red stones in them.
Galam, Daniel Icaza, 2012, Sterling Silver, 21ct Red Corundum ("Ruby")
It was a bit tricky at first figuring out how to make each ring differently, as there is always the temptation to make them all the same, but not only would that be too easy, but boring as well.

Boring not only for me as a maker, but for my clients as well. I personally can't stand the idea of doing the same exact thing over and over again forever. I also know that my clients appreciate the fact that every piece I make is unique and made one at a time. It ensures that the item they receive was made specially for them and that no one else will have a piece the same as theirs.

I love making rings and as much as I need to shift my attention to other projects, a few rings may keep popping up from time to time.
If anyone is interested in having a ring made, let me know and we can discuss the possibilities and options. Just send me an email:

I'll be back again soon with a few more rings to share before I start focusing on the new additions to "Monetary Bondage", which need to be ready for my solo show in 2013.
For now its back to the studio.
Until next time.
Peace and Love
