Liz Bucheit - Norge Knuckle Ring
Artist: Liz Bucheit
Materials: handmade fine silver filigree, rhodolite garnet
Dimensions: 3.5 x 1.5 x .5 inches
I lovingly refer to this piece as my Norge Knuckle Ring mainly because I love a good buffet line!
If you have traveled to Norway you may be familiar with the fact that Norwegians have no respect for the queue when waiting in line for food. More times than not my polite manner of allowing people to cut in front of me got me pushed to the very end of line. This ring will keep folks at least an arm’s length out of your way in any social situation where you need to stand your ground!
