Angela had some gold rings and diamonds she hadn’t worn in years, but with such sentimental value, scrapping them for cash just didn’t feel right.
What if Ana studded a Sabine ring with some diamonds?
And what if Ana used the gold rings to make a necklace, also studded with diamonds?
Ana melted the 18 carat gold rings and formed a lovely gold “nugget” shape, like you might find in a mine. The fabulous diamonds were set in a quirky irregular pattern, to reflect the organic, tactile feel of the “nugget”.
Hung on an oxidised/blackened silver chain, and accompanied by the beaten silver of the Sabine ring, the overall outcome was a very original way to up-cycle and remodel pre-existing jewellery!
Watch how the 18 carat gold turns to jelly when it reaches 1,064°C!
