Ties that Bind Us

Material: Silver
Ring Size: P (Aus) 56mm and O (Aus) 55mm
Weight approx: 19g

This piece is inspired by Gijs Bakker’s ‘Everyone’s Friend’ (1984). Bakker’s piece consisted of 6 rings linked together with different sizes that allowed the wearer many possibilities: 1. wear one ring at a time and let the rest hang loose, 2.wear all rings at once and 3. share the rings with loved ones. Here my piece consists of two linked rings, each ring is of a different size that represents a different people. Similarly to Bakker’s piece, the rings can be worn in many ways. Furthermore I used this piece to experiment with engraving.
