I feel like these rings may be part of my signature as a jeweller. They have been very popular and so it was time to make some more!
|Les Petites Cailloux, pebble rings with recycled silver|
I used some recycled silver for the back plates of each pebble 'cup', this gives a slightly weathered look to the silver which tones in perfectly with the surf tossed, aged, pebbles.

These are my favourite kinds of pebbles. Shot through with white, tiny little minimal canvases of tone and line. The one pictured above has the most delicate of quartz lines running through its basalt body.

And of course, it wouldn't be a Hybrid Handmade piece without a secret little extra texture. This time I used a sycamore leaf skeleton and a fern.
