Exploring a flowing geometrical design without corners and right angles, this sterling silver ring was imprinted using handmade Native American metal stamps as an artistic expression of geometry in pattern to melds both simplicity and complexity in statement of endless circles and ovals.
Hand-sheared 8 mm wide from 18 gauge sterling silver, each ring is handcrafted from start to finish and features design stamps purchased directly from a local Native American Metal Stamp Maker. These unique metal stamps were carved by entirely by hand from rebar and railroad ties to imprint precious metals with design patterns. Each design element making up the pattern represents a single strike of the metal stamp with a hammer to create an impression deep in the flat ring band. After completion of the imprinted design, a patina is applied to the darken the grooves for contrast, the band is shaped into a ring by tapping over a metal mandrel using a nylon mallet, and the ends are joined together at a seam using silver solder heated by an acetylene torch.
