Birdcage Ring by MirielDesign Birdcage Ring by MirielDesign
I designed and made this birdcage ring, in 925 silver and 585 gold. (Sterling and 14K) I did the photography too.
Entirely hand fabricated, no casting or metal clay involved.
Each bird is made up of 6 pieces put together.
There is a total of 93 soldering points on this ring, and it took two pretty intense workdays to make.
The cage door can be opened.

It's about a size 7 (US) or 54mm, and is possibly for sale.
The process of how the birds are made can be seen HERE.

I probably should have edited out the burns on my finger, but hey, that's how a goldsmiths hands usually look like. I'm glad my nails and fingertips aren't showing.

This is possibly the most amazing thing I ever did see, jewelry-wise. I can't even begin to express how brilliant this is.
