This piece was inspired by the idea of temporary palaces. Ancient Indian buildings used to be transformed with textiles- these tent structures altered the function of the space, creating areas of celebration, worship, and provided shelter and shade for events. Tipu the Sultan of Mysore famously carried a highly decorative tent to war, providing a luxury space for royalty during a battle.
Thinking about small luxuries one can carry with them throughout their journey, I wanted to create a piece that oozed opulence. This one of a kind ring features a woman splayed over an ethically sourced opal, mined and cut in Ethopia, whilst clinging onto a recycled ruby.
This one of a kind ring was handcarved in wax, before being cast in 9k recycled gold, and signed with a lab-grown ruby on the inside.
