Simon William's PaHoeHoe 1'Lava Flow Ring is made from oxidised sterling silver that has been heavily textured with layers of verticle scores. Highlighted against the heavy texture is a hint of hammered gold on one section at the front of the ring. The inside of the band curves inwards and is highly polished, contrasting with the oxidisation colours of blues and purples. The result is a detailed and tactile ring.
Materials: Oxidised sterling silver and 18ct yellow gold.
Ring size: T 1/2
Dimensions: 5.5mm x 3mm
