Copper and Turquoise Shield Ring - MADE TO ORDER $90.00


This wide and organically round copper shield ring has been hand pierced, hand drawn and etched, hand-formed and hammered into a waved round (you can reference the 5th photo to see how it has an organic wave), soldered to a textured copper band, oxidized, battered and scarred with my signature antiquing effect, and polished to a deep coppery-bronze finish. It has a small turquoise stone set in a silver bezel in the center of the ring.

I simply love the combination of copper and turquoise, they are mutually complimentary. Copper has a intriguing malleability underneath my fingers as I work with it. It will mold like butter to my every whim, yet remains solid in its metal state. The organic earth tones in this ring resonate with all seasons.

It is battered and rough, there are imperfections due to etching and soldering, yet this is desireable as part of the beauty of the design. The copper is buffed with a protectant wax finish that is absorbed into the metal, and the patina is protected for many years. As you wear this ring, the oxidization will fade, as well as darken again over the years, and create it's own finish, unique to the wearer.

Dimensions - Due the organic nature of this ring, it will be approx 2.00" round, and the ring shank is a comfortable fit of approx 5-7mm wide.
Ring Size - You will be prompted upon checkout
