This one-of-a-kind ring was curated in Brasov, Romania by a Romanian artist named Adela Cremene. She takes natural flora that is native to Romania and found near her hometown of Brasov, dries it, sets it in resin and then mounts it on sterling silver to create a special piece of wearable art.
- .925 sterling silver adjustable band
- " wide with a beautiful background to highlight the details of the veins
More Details about the Piece from the Artist, Adela:
"Physalis alkekengi is a highly attractive plant. Each year it makes a good show producing white star shaped flowers, which are followed by bright orange-red, paper-like lanterns in autumn.
Commonly known as 'winter cherry' or 'chinese lantern', we can find in spring time its veins, after defrost, looking like a delicate lace.
We pressed and preserved in resin the veins of the lantern, as in a modern amber, and made this adjustable ring of 925 sterling silver.
To highlight and complete the effect of the beautiful veins, we used an intense black color as background.
The plant is kept inside a strong clear resin that will last for many years, for your children and your nieces to admire it.
If you will own this jewellery you become part of a worldwide movement of preserving nature and rising awareness to the danger pose of pollution. If we can make more and more people realise that plants are crucial for a healthy ecosystem, we are one step closer to a better world."
We love this sentiment and couldn't agree more! Enjoy!
