I dream of one day going to Kashgar, hopefully with my family. I made this ring inspired by photos I have seen of the old town in Kashgar; beautiful, unique, colourful, threatened by demolition, but very much alive.
How did I make it? I made the ring from fine silver metal clay (PMC3), using a stenciling technique according to Kelly Russell’s instructions in the book PMC Technic (edited by Tim McCreight). I gave it a vibrant Liver of Sulphur-patina and set a large iridescent freshwater pearl in the centre.
New York jewellery artist Pamela Love has not only created some of the most beutiful jewellery I have ever seen, she also has amazing style. I will let the photos speak for themselves; words are not really necessary here. I found out from her website (www.pamelalovenyc.com) that she began making jewellery in her apartment in Brooklyn seven years ago, and since then built up a full production facility and design studio in Manhattan. Pamela’s jewellery line is also ethical; most metal is recycled and all the stones are ethically sourced. And everything is made in that studio in Manhattan, that it would be a dream for me to one day visit.
