Squid Ring

Squid Ring

"Got a whale of a tale to tell you, lads. 
A whale of a tale or two. 
'Bout the flapping fish and the girls I've loved,
On nights like this with the moon above.
A whale of a tale and it's all true--
I swear by my tattoo."

My brother and I had a VCR copy of '20,000 Leagues Under the Sea' when we were kids and we watched it countless times. I always thought the Nautilus was supercool, but the giant squid needed work (granted, the movie was made in the 50s). I put a little of my idealized undersea monster in this design but softened the edges up with a little art-nouveau styling. I've been looking at a lot of Japanese woodcuts lately as well, and I feel like some of this also seeped into the design.

This ring is a highly detailed piece with the squid and water/wave design flowing all the way around the ring, leaving no particular part "up." It is a nice 8mm in width, over 2mm thick, and has a delicious weighty feel.

    This ring is hand carved in wax by me in my Portland studio using pointy tools, and then cast using the lost-wax method. I do all finishing work, stone setting, and pearl mounting. Each ring is a highly detailed work of art with great attention to detail at every angle; this ring in particular has a delicious weighty feel.
