Frida Ring

Sterling silver, 22ct gold plate, black rhodium, copper with patina, black resin, clear resin.

Frida Kahlo was my inspiration for this piece.

I have created a present I imagined Diego Rivera gave his wife and in so doing made a present which encompassed elements I felt would appeal to her patriotism and interests. The blue sapphire is a reference to her ‘ Blue House’, the large stone under the silver arches is a Mexican Opal and the tiny ring on a chain, the ‘heart’ of the piece is red referring to the native Dahlia flower of Mexico.

"Feet, what do I need them for I have wings to fly" was a quote which inspired the birdcage arches on the main piece.

This piece is conceptual but its versatility renders it wearable and changeable. These images show the 5 ways to ear the one piece of jewellery.

3 components which fit together with the mini red ring on a necklace chain fitting inside the gold crown ring which in turn fits into the bottom of the silver cube. Worn as statement ring with the mini ring on a chain hidden inside the cube.
A single ring. A single chain.
A necklace with two pieces. A necklace with the main ring as a pendant and the mini ring nestled inside the arches showing the blue sapphire and the opal stone.
