Rainy day sparked with a blue topaz splash of sunlight! Beautiful blue topaz modern silver ring with wide textured band size 8.
Note from the Artist
I made this contemporary ring entirely by hand. I’m fascinated with the textures created by combining fusing, granulation, and forging. Each piece on my workbench is special, but with Fused Topaz I was inspired by the subtle beauties of natural textures that are often overlooked in our busy lives.
Probably one of the most rewarding things to create is handmade texture- and the texture in Fused Topaz is no exception. I always approach the creation of texture a bit like a mad scientist. The alchemy of fire, force, and metal is unpredictable and enthralling. Each hammer blow shapes the metal in a new direction. Each pass of a torch runs the risk of artistic implosion, where the metal could sink into a formless mass once more. The thrill of creation is echoed in the rush of artistic freedom with every moment, until the final texture is achieved.
I hope you enjoy Fused Topaz.
