This Phoenix ring has a wrapped band with minimal texture, and features an oval hubei turquoise embellished with four silver drops. The perfect understated ring. Kristin Buhler Design is pleased to bring you treasures to wear and enjoy forever.
This is the exact ring you will receive. Because the ring is very organic in shape, the size is approximately US 8.75. This ring has been left with a bright and shiny polish. It will develop a natural patina in time, revealing all the delicious textures.
Created from my own scrap, I have fused* bits of silver together until a strip of silver is formed. Due to the nature of fusing scrap silver the results are quite unpredictable. When I start a ring, I select scrap pieces to fit a specific look, but really, anything can happen when the silver turns molten... Once I have a strip of silver I shape it into a ring on my ring mandrel with a rawhide hammer. The ends get soldered together, ensuring there are no snags on loose ends. Lastly, if the ring begs for a stone, I choose the right one and find the perfect spot for the stone to sit.
*Fusing is to heat the silver with a torch until it is at the point of becoming liquid-hot. When two pieces of silver reach the same temperature, they join together without the aid of solder. Not enough heat and the pieces won't join together. Too much heat and both pieces quickly become a molten orb. The joy in fusing is walking that fine line between creating something and ending up with a huge ball of silver.
