Underwater Ring by GeshaR Underwater Ring by GeshaR
A ring inspired by the diverse life of a coral reef (I had the pleasure of diving in the Red sea a few years back).

The ring is different from all sides, so you can enjoy a different ring every time you turn it!

Features a clownfish in an anemone, a starfish, a brain coral, sponges, a seashell, a coral fish, seaweed...

The ring is patinated sterling silver set with 6 sapphires sizes 1.3-2.1 mm.(02-.05CT) in different shades of blue, from sky-blue to almost black.

This model was hand-carved in wax then cast in silver to replicate.

All the work (except for casting) - design, wax-carving, sanding, polishing, patinating and stone setting - made by me.

This ring is awailiable in my Etsy shop here:

P.S.: Anyone has an idea how to present such an object better? The ring is literally different from every angle, photos don't do it justice...

Perhaps take a short film clip of it on a lazy susan then make it into a .gif?

another lovely piece, fantastic concept :)

presentation wise I always thought atalia65.deviantart.com/galler… does a really nice presentation

Thank you!
I always look to learn from other deviants, and presentation is sometimes trickier than work with metals or wax :-) I hope to improve it, so thank you for advice as well!

I find the same, just don't seem to have an eye for how to present my stuff either.
never seem to do them justice.

It's a truly lovely piece and anyone who has any appreciation of the craft would see that instantly.

I really love this one! It's well-composed, very detailed and I think it includes the most recognisable sea creatures. Well done :)

Maybe you could put it on a dias and take a landscape photo of it?
