Amy Stringer - Twin Stone Ring

Artist: Amy Stringer
Materials: silver, brass, cement, gold leaf
Size: 6
Dimensions: 30mm height x 2mm (6cm design length x 3cm width)

Artist Statement:
Two incredibly unique faceted cement gemstones are held within two sterling silver claw settings. Distressed brass cubes are positioned around the smooth, tactile cement casts, bringing detail to the ring. Each cube holds white and grey cement topped with gold leaf. A comfortable twisted silver ring shank positions the two stones together and completes this beautiful and bold statement piece.
From Amy Stringer’s ‘What is Precious?’ collection, this ring gives you everything a solid gold and gemstone ring would, but with a unique and thought provoking twist.

Artist Bio:
Amy fuses industrial and precious materials to create bold, one off contemporary jewellery.
Amy primarily combines cement with striking metalwork, nature and gemstones to challenge society’s perception of ‘precious’.
With architectural undertones running throughout Amy’s work, contrasting with recognizable fine and historic jewellery elements, her designs are anything but ordinary.
Amy Studied at BA level at Sheffield Hallam University where she developed her signature style. Since moving back to Leeds, UK, she has continued to champion contemporary jewellery through her own work, teaching, mentoring and curating.
Amy has exhibited her collections locally and internationally and worked with many galleries across the UK.
