Scarlet Tanager Ring

By Quintin Quam

This offering is sold.
Quintin Quam's all hand-fabricated sterling silver ring, size 7, is a portrait in stone of a scarlet tanager! Quintin used gorgeous red coral, black jet, blue and green turquoise, and blue lapis to make this feathered friend, and the sweet flower upon which it is perched! Each color is a hand cut stone. Each stone is fit to fill the shapes cut into sterling silver overlaid onto another sheet of sterling silver in a process sometimes referred to as overlay-inlay. Quintin has delicately incised feather detail into the wing and tail. About 1 1/2" long and 1/2" wide, slightly convex. Signed by the artist.
