These rings were made as an addition to the ‘Make Jewellery Not War’ collection as a potential little talking point. The idea being that you ‘burst’ some little knowledge bubbles, you learn something new, or enlighten someone else.
To showcase this, the three rings are three freeze-frames of a bubble popping.
STAGE ONE//Minimal Texture (Intact Bubble)
STAGE TWO//Light Texture (Bubble just popping)
STAGE THREE//Deep Texture (Bubble matter fully separating)
These textured rings will be packaged up in the Metalsmith packaging pictured above.
10% of this sale will be donated to Medecins Sans Frontieres.
Minimal Texture (Stage 1//Intact Bubble), Light Texture (Stage 2//Bubble just popping), Deep Texture (Stage 3//Bubble matter fully separating)

Make sure to take these rings off before washing your hands. It will help preserve the texture and stop you trapping moisture and soap underneath which may cause your skin to react.
The more you wear silver, the less likely it is to tarnish.
All throughout our lives, we are exposed to a phenomenal amount of negative information, whether it be international conflict, political issues or problems on a personal scale. This can – understandably – be overwhelming at times. A part of the programming in our brains results in negative bias. This means we tend to focus on and therefore remember the more upsetting, hurtful or humiliating moments over the ones that truly make our hearts sing.
With this project, I endeavoured to bring the positives to light. Despite the countless struggles of the world, a little kindness and compassion can indeed go a long way. If history has taught us anything, it is that nothing can ever be solved through continuously perpetuating negativity, hatred and fighting.
It is not at all my intention to trivialise the severity of these issues, but negative things will always happen; they will always be inevitable. It does not necessarily have to be about the issues themselves, but what you choose to do about them.
