Small Barnacle Ring in Brass or Sterling Silver // CCXVI

Small Barnacle Ring in Brass or Sterling Silver // CCXVI

from 70.00

Inspired by the tenacious barnacle whose existence on the sea shore indicates healthy waters and vibrant intertidal community of creatures. Cast in sterling silver or brass, this ring is part of a series called Crustacea Cirripedia.

This ring is a beautiful and simple replication of a small cluster of barnacles. The ring is comfortable enough to wear everyday and small enough to stack with other rings.

Barnacles build their homes of calcium carbonate to withstand drastic changes in temperature, humidity and physical agitation. I create the Crustacea Cirripedia rings in order to pay homage to their solidarity and to draw strength from their sheer will to live. All rings are first hand carved in wax and then cast in metal. By hand carving the barnacles I am able to control the exact details and shapes that make the most realistic looking barnacle jewelry.
