This commissioned piece from October 2015 is a good example of how existing jewelry can be turned into something new. In this piece, Ron had a green stone tigereye ring that broke at the shank. We came up with a fun solution to use the tigereye stone in a sterling silver pendant that could open up, revealing a small space, perfect for hiding something secret in. Since the tigereye is shaped like a skull, we added a cross bone design to where the secret box snaps shut. I even added a hinge to the bail at the top to make it moveable, so almost ‘flutters in the wind’. Yo HO Yo HO! A pirates life for… Ron!
