Angels, Moss, and Wood

95.00

We owe it to the minerals how the stones find each other’s hues so nicely. An olive green Moss Agate is the perfect tone match to the common opal, grass green Petrified Wood. The rich, varying color within both stones make their interaction even more exciting. A white and clear Angel Wing Plume Agate is a great contrast and shows off how lovely the green agates are. Set in Fine and Sterling Silver, this 7 3/4-8 Ring is a delightful statement piece for your finger.

Folks keep on asking me; ‘You say you like to use the stones in their ‘natural shape’ so how do you end up with the circles?’. Great question. I do like to use the organic shapes the stones choose. When I have small material (after a stone breaks), if I want to still polish it and keep my finger prints and finder nails, I have to put it on a stick or a ‘dop’. My dops are round (like dowels) so as I am grinding and polishing, there’s a good chance that a raw stone will end up minimizing to the shape of the support it’s on. This ring was made from three such stones that adopted the dop shape. I love using the dop round stones like paint in my palette. They add color variety and interesting rhythm to the jewelry design.

These stones were sourced in Oregon, hand polished, and the setting fabricated from scratch by Karen Britt. Each piece is a one of a kind piece of art, because no two stones are the same and the settings are created by hand, no two pieces are the same (even the earrings). It should be mentioned that all stones are used in their natural state; never dyed or heated to change their appearance. All the metals used are either recycled or fair, humane trade verified and all components used in the jewelry will return to the earth leaving no footprint. Thank you for enjoying the art.
