A good friend wanted a ring for her boyfriend.
She wanted something meaningful,
a design that would have her “all over it”.
After talking to her about the various things that she likes and is attracted to,
she mentioned that through the years she found
the shape of the double helix comforting
and it has a surprising association with her name.
She decided on the creation of a Men’s Ring that had the shape of DNA.
I looked over the internet to see what other designers had tried to accomplish
with the shape so as not to duplicate other works then created a series of sketches for her approval.
We discussed the possibility of creating the strand to encircle the finger;
however because of the detail requested,
one would find the varying textures uncomfortable over time.
We thought about opening the “ladder” to give it a more airy look to it,
however because of his love of gardening and the likely hood
of his keeping it on once he receives it,
she decided for something more durable
The result is the one-of-a-kind DNA Ring you see here.
This carving was done completely by hand
to produce a full three-dimensional shape
on the top with a smooth “comfort fit” on the inside of the ring.
The back of the ring or “shank” was designed as a “basic”
to provide comfort and wear-ability for someone who uses his hands a great deal.
They both love the design
and there is nothing quite like it anywhere else: truly a one of a kind piece.
