Silk Ring - Sterling Silver or 14k Gold
A form reminiscent of both the organism that created it and the end product - silk. When alone, these threads have a much different quality than when together. The curling and curving action of this piece evokes the act of weaving to create a supportive net out of one continuous thread.
Adjustable open band. Wire is approx. 1.8mm thick. Cast from 100% recycled gold or silver.
M. HISAE is the jewelry portfolio of artist Michelle Hisae Meronek, blending concepts of art, object, and earth into symbols of commitment, to self and others. Pieces are designed as a blending of disciplines and cultures that influence her the most - her Japanese and Eastern European heritage, travels throughout the American Southwest, Modernist and Bauhaus art, furniture, and architecture, feminine-masculine inquiries, and her continuous study of terra-spirituality. Castings are produced locally and from recycled metals. Nearly all diamonds used are reclaimed, sourced from a sixth-generation, family-owned dealer operating between Antwerp and NYC.
