Created from the ancient technique of cuttlebone casting, the Lamina Ring demands mindfulness and respect for the environment and all life on earth.
Associative Virtue: Reverance
Handmade with Sterling Silver
The blackened sterling on the ring (low parts in the design) is made with Sterling Sliver process though patination. Simple chemistry is used to speed up the oxidation process of the silver and turns it black. Then the high spots on the silver are polished to give the design more dimension. The black color is not permanent. It can be polished or eventually the object will adapt to the wearer and the black will transform into shiny silver on the high spots.
TEA Sustainability Report: Over 7 years worth of accumulated Sterling Silver wire scraps were recycled to make up roughly 50% of the Silver used in the Lattice Series.
