Silver cascade ring with crushed semi-precious stones

by Jo Baker



A flurry of poured molten silver encrusted with crushed purple amethyst garnishes this striking ring.

A flurry of poured molten silver encrusted with crushed semi-precious stones garnish this striking ring. Cast in solid silver the piece has a darkened oxidised finish to show off the unusual textures and colours of the metal and stones.

This striking cast ring exploits how fluid silver flows to form droplets, ripples and ribbons and the crystalline textures of crushed stones. On an intimate scale, it is part of a collection inspired by the larger experiments of American land-artist Robert Smithson. In the 1970s he poured asphalt, glue, rubble and other materials upon quarries, buildings and hillsides as comments on natural chaos, decay and geological forms.

Jewellery Designer

Making jewellery allows me to explore and express my love and curiosity for materials, natural processes, textures and forms in a tactile and sensual way. I have always been fascinated by the natural world and studied physics and astronomy; including spending 10 years in astronomical research working in the UK, Australia and the US; and landscape architecture. I currently work as an editor on the science journal Nature as well as writing books.

My current collection pays homage to American minimalist and land artist Robert Smithson. Drawing on his landscape-scale sculptures of poured asphalt and mirrors, geology and crystals, it explores the technique of pouring molten silver onto wire rings, frames and stones. The pieces exploit serendipity and chaos. Most are one-offs never to be repeated. They reveal silver’s fluid character.
