Opal Spiderweb Ring

By
Sterling silver opal inlay spiderweb ring with a detachable spider. The spider's body holds an incredible Australian crystal opal that matches the opal inlayed into the spiderweb.The entire piece was hand-carved in wax and cast in-house. The spiderweb is accented with pink spinel gemstones and black enamel. This is a one-of-a-kind piece.

fabulous!
the design and execution are ... mindblowing =D

what i probably like most in the process of it´s development, is that you decided to make the spider removable. it gives the whole piece so much more variety - which is a very important feature for such an extraordinary piece, because it´s really hard to wear it so that the attention of the onlooker will focus entirely on it alone, so it makes a lot of sense for the owner to be able to simplify it a tad, so it can be worn more "casually" and more often (tho it´s still very unique and outstanding and thus also demanding without the spider).

what an amzing job you did! makes me wanna go back to gold smithing and learning it properly!
