These rings came out of the shop today and made us moon-eyed.
Partnerships are all about balance, or a constant engagement to work toward balance.
These rings — ebony and birdseye maple — present and enactment of those sweet efforts. The throughline, what binds them, is a shimmering inlay of ruby, yellow topaz, and mother of pearl.
In the pictured rough-hewn box, the rings will have a beautiful place to rest together, while their owners going swimming or rock climbing or whatever heavy activities they like to do.
A scrap of a poem, from Alice Notley’s “Clinical Thermometer with Moonstone,” via The Poetry Foundation: “I love you as a fan loves air. oops it’s vice-versa I told you about that character She is a bezel awaiting the plop of a ruby she must grow chronically”
We wish for the wearers of these rings to grow chronically, together, in balance, and to have a beautiful life together!
Style and adornment are a way to embolden and announce your interiority to the outside world. So, let’s all be authentic. Let’s all greet the world with kindness. Embrace who you are and who you strive to be.
Most of the people we work with come to us at a time of engagement, marriage or anniversary: they’re affirming and reaffirming their commitment to each other, the value of good Earth citizenship, and the lifecycle of matter.
But there isn’t any reason to save that celebration for just a romantic occasion
- Consider, adorning your hand with a reminder of the things you believe.
- Consider, giving your best friend a birthday present that means something special.
- Consider, passing on a talisman of earth to a family member, a tree to the family tree.
We believe that we make objects that mean something, out of materials that are sustainable. By wearing one of our rings, you can make your own meaning. Why wait to have or give that?
Here are two new rings that we love, that work perfectly no matter the purpose.
Dyed birdseye maple with a rosewood interior.
In real life, this beauty shimmers like we imagine a mermaid might. Or, it is the silver of a spring, or the sweet ethereal mist of twilight. Wearing a ring like this inserts some magic dreaminess into the everyday.
Rosewood, using the natural color abnormality of the lumber
This one by design uses contrast and as a result feels uber-contemporary. Like dominoes or like black-and-white cookies, the colors work together strikingly. In it is confidence, a 3″-high newspaper headline, strength and force and elegance all at once.
Let our work be one small step toward matching your insides to your outsides. May you find pleasure therein.
