Heavy rings of oxidized silver with accent rings in 24k gold vermeil rings. Each ring is hand granulated with a handmade ancient style clasp. A great piece to layer or wear alone. 30 inches long.
Granulation takes years of practice using the purest of metals. Each tiny granule is made by hand and making enough for one piece of jewelry can take weeks. Each granule is then placed one by one on the piece with a tiny brush. The piece is heated almost to the melting point. At that precise moment, the granules fuse and become one with the item being granulated. Look at museum collections featuring ancient jewelry and you'll recognize this technique.
