Kiln-formed glass and patinated brass, with sterling silver backing and ring shank.
The circular path within this ring is created using rods of glass that are rolled in a fine metal powder. The glass is carefully arranged in a mold, and heated to around 1500 degrees Fahrenheit. The metal oxidizes when heating. The entire piece is black when it comes out of the kiln. The glass in the carved on a lapidary wheel and brought to an optical polish, highlighting the delicate halos of black around each rod of glass.
The glass including the bezel measures 3/4" x 7/8".
