Wrapping a hint of Art Deco, this bronze bypass ring features two rectilinear cut outs with asymmetrical emphasis to fuse handmade artisanship and industrial decoration in an ultramodern medley of competing styles both prominent yet obfuscated by yet another design twist, the mirror finish. The temptation existed to exaggerated the handmade with a hammered finish or focus on the industrial by adding a heavy brushed burnish, however the choice was made to favor neither and polish the bronze to a bright golden shine.
Bypass rings are adjustable and will fit one full ring size up or down from the size 7 shown here in the photograph, however if you would like a custom size, just let us know in the check out notes. Bronze is an alloy of 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 or if tarnishing a real concern, you may request a wax coating at check out, but such coatings tend to dull the radiant shine that makes this ring so unique.
The band was sawed entirely by hand from a flat sheet of 20 gauge bronze using a frame jewelry saw and was preciously design to taper from 1 inch at the top down to ¼ inch at the bottom in order to give a sense of “spiraling down.” To form the wrap ring shape, the tapered band with the rectilinear cut outs was placed diagonally over a steel ring mandrel instead of perfectly aligned like standard rings and then shaped with a non-marking nylon mallet.
