I made two new silver rings inspired by the strangeness of our times.

Help me choose which one to enter in Danaca Design’s Battle of the Rings.

I made these rings in response to the Coronvirus pandemic, the roller coaster of feelings it has brought, and a desire to channel that energy into something positive.

A - Blue Skies Come Back Eventually

sterling silver and chalcedony gemstone.

Inspired by the notion that no matter what kind of dark, diseased, or uncertain times we live in, eventually the storm breaks and we see blue skies again.

B - Spring Despite Covid

oxidized sterling silver

Inspired by the strange contrast of beautiful, colorful spring blooms popping up everywhere, while at the same time we’re stuck in isolation, fear, and uncertainty as the world struggles through the Coronavirus pandemic.

Yikes! Too hard to decide…
My initial thought is B


March 07, 2021

B, definitely!

Tough one. Both are intriguing and I love how dramatically different they are. B has a Game of Thrones vibe which could appeal to at-home nerds but I keep going back to A. I like the additional color and agree with Jessie about the softness and energy. Plus, it looks like a puffy pastry. So, A for me.

A. It has a uplifting and positive message that we all need right now. I feel it’s still your style as this reminds me of your sculptural pieces


March 07, 2021

A for sure! I love how soft you made the metal look. It’s alive and energetic.

B, definitely. It also is more your style, so many graceful lines and curves.
