Fourth Final: Mild Steel, Sandblasted Rings and Silicone and Rare Earth Magnet Attachments
Through this piece I was able to question the position of rings. Who says that rings have to be bound to the finger? Why can’t they become a brooch or a brooch backing or simply a thing? Here I have attempted to free the ring, through the use of rare earth magnets. The rings are made of mild steel that has been sand blasted and covered in a wax polish to prevent the wearer's finger from turning green if the wearer chooses to wear these pieces as rings.
