“Poppy Ring #1” was inspired by Hungarian Blue poppies that  grew in my garden. I loved how the dried seed pods functioned to spread the seeds. The idea was to take the shape and function of the poppy seed pod and translate it into a ring. My idea was to create a ring that could hold “seeds” and the wearer being able to spread these seeds upon their discretion. This piece was made by using a dapping tool for the body of the ring and the silver band was forged into shape.

 This ring will be on exhibition June 3rd to 6th as apart of Milan Jewelry Week.
