The Medallion ring is built from recycled sterling silver, and a vibrant, glowing piece of Vesuvianite, mined and cut in Northern California. The silver was recycled in my studio by melting down bits and pieces of silver from previous projects, into a molten blob. Then, I forged it with my heaviest hammer and a lot of elbow grease. After forming it into the desired shape I added some soft texture before setting the stone. The ring measures just about 1" wide/tall.
