Cathy is an avid collector of my work and whilst at a show in New York she passed me her Art Deco family heirloom ring to work my magic on. Once I got her home I first carefully unset the centre stone to re-polish and bring her back to former glory. The rest of the design was worked around the original setting. I love the contrast of my organic textural claws around the bold blocking and stylised straight lines of the original antique. The symmetry of the piece is merely an illusion, every claw is unique.
