Wrapping a feathery ring around your finger, this bronze bypass ring features a feather cut out that was sawed by hand in a uniquely crafted ring with a mirror finish to create an artistic bronze anniversary ring (8th anniversary) or statement ring.
Chosen as a revered Native American symbol, the feather design was selected to embody the concepts of trust, strength, and fortitude blended together and wrapped around the ring, while the radiant bronze casts 360 degrees of golden shine as a guiding light.
To create this original and unique ring, a flat band of 20 gauge bronze was sheared 10mm wide on one end and tapered down to 3mm over a length of about 3 inches. The feather was sawed free hand by drilling a pilot hole in the center of the band and then cutting out a feather shape. While artistic appeal was the main goal in crafting this ring, a comfortable fit could not be ignored, so all edges were rounded and filed before placing the ring diagonally oriented over a steel ring mandrel and shaping with a nylon mallet to produce the bypass ring shape. Given the unusual shape, polishing to a mirror finish can only be completed by hand using a series of cloths in ever decreasing grit until finally polishing with a 15,000 grit.
Bypass rings are considered adjustable and will fit one full ring size up or down from the size 7 shown here in the photograph. If you would like a custom size, just let us know in the notes to seller section at check out. Bronze is an alloy of primarily tin and copper as such all bronze will eventually tarnish like copper. To keep your ring looking like new, you can simply re-polish with a soft cloth at any time. Unlike copper and bronze, gold will not tarnish or discolour. Like all of my rings, this feather ring can also be custom ordered in 14k gold. Please contact me any time for current market prices for gold.
