Imagine wandering into an ancient oak grove forgotten by time, and catching the briefest glimpse of faeries among the tree branches, that is the inspiration for this magical collection. One day when walking through the woods my thoughts carried me to that mystical place and that is how this collection of wood nymphs was conceived. I started by collecting oak twigs, the more gnarled the better, and waxing small sections of them together to form interesting arrangements. The shapes inspired the faerie poses; crouching, standing, climbing, dancing, sitting or running. Then I sculpted the faerie three dimensionally out of wax; being mindful of proportion, musculature as well as minute detail. When the sculpture was completed I added her to the oak twig and they were cast together in solid sterling silver. To achieve the finish each piece has gone through two different oxidizing processes, the branches are left mostly dark with a satin luster over top to induce the feeling of old wood, while the faerie is given a higher polish, but still retains antiquing in the recessed areas to showcase the form and detail of the work. Included in the collection are several necklaces that have attached sections of cast twig, a pendant, ring, bracelet and earrings.
This ring is 1 1/2 inches long in the front, making it on the large size for a ring, but it fits nicely between the knuckles making it very comfortable to wear. Send me a "convo" when ordering and I'll size it to fit you. Note: the amount the branch overlaps the faerie will vary depending on the size you get, there will be more overlap with a large size and less with a smaller, the ring shown is a size 8.

What can I say except that I am in love with my new ring!! As I knew I would be. The details are incredible!! I love how the faerie glows against the wood. It's like a dream come true. You can't imagine how thrilled I was when I slipped it on and it fit perfectly!! I am wearing it on my right ring finger as I type this. It feels weighty and solid, a good feeling! I will definitely be ordering another piece from you soon, Sharon. Thank you so much!! n nWhat can I say except that I am in love with my new ring!! As I knew I would be. The details are incredible!!
