Your paper mementos transformed into a beautiful engagement ring - makes your proposal even more private:
A personal paper layer ring created from your papery memories, combined with colored paper, silver and a beautiful gemstone.
A centered Sterling silver layer and one beautiful Gemstone makes this ring a beautiful eyecatcher.
I use natural gemstones for this design.
The gemstones you can choose from are Amethyst, Iolithe, Peridote, blue topaz, tourmaline, garnet, citrine;
Standard sizes are 5 x 5 carré or 5 mm round faceted,
others on request and possibly additional charge
If you prefer any other type of gemstone, shape or size, please let me know.
I do the entire process of designing and making by myself:
I advise you and answer all your questions on paper layer rings,
if necessary I make a digital sketch to show dimensions and colors as a look-and-feel.
I sift and sort the papers which you send to me, I add colored paper if wanted.
The next step is making the paper material by using a particular adhesive technique.
I glue sheet by sheet on to the next and make a stack fitting the width of your ring.
While the paper layer material hardens, I prepare the precious metal parts.
I use sterling silver, which I forge into the inner construction of the ring (see images).
The centered silver layer which shows on the surface of the ring is connected to the bezel setting and to the inner sleeve.
When the paper material has dried and hardened, I cut it to the ring shape.
In the next steps I fit paper material and metal parts together to a permanent join, then sand
Finally I do the sealing and polish to the finish you like.
The ring is stable, water resistant and suited for daily use.
It comes in a precious gift box.
