Silver rumple ring - size 5.5 - 8mm wide
Foldformed rings made in tarnish-resistant silver. Satin finish. This ring is not cast, but formed organically with many folds in a sheet of Argentium sterling (.930 tarnish-resistant silver). No two can ever be alike. This one is size 5½, and the band is 8mm wide.
The process of foldforming metal leads naturally to the rumpled-cloth look of many of our pieces of foldformed jewelry. It comes from creating many box-pleats next to each other using a vise, a hammer, and many reheatings and rehammerings of the piece of metal, then coming back for another round of folds between the boxpleats, which lead to a more chaotic, organic, clothlike look. This process is much more difficult in silver, and sometimes large pieces fail, which means that frequently all that is left usable is smaller strips, which I form into rings.
If you like these and want a different size, let me know; I might have one around. However, the process I go through to make these rings means that the metal basically determines the size the ring wants to be, so I can't normally make them to order. I may be able to size a given ring up very slightly, but with this design it is not always possible. If there is good response to these, I will continue to make more, and there may be more sizes available here on Artfire. Message or e-mail me if you wish to be notified when I make a particular size of ring.
