In July of 2013, I approached my buddy Alex, at Seventh Circle Artworks (SCA) with an idea for another custom piece. This time, a ring shaped like a picture frame which incorporated my love of Vintage design and skulls. We met over a curry and some beers (always a good combo at an SCA meeting!). Turns out that he wanted to design a ‘frame ring’ as well, so we decided on a collaboration.
Here’s my primitive initial sketch of the piece I had in mind. Filigree design, minature skulls, and scroll work. A little Baroque with some Rock ‘n’ Roll thrown in – Baroque ‘n’ Roll if you will 😉
Alex ran with my sketch, we talked a few times, I sent some inspirational images across and he developed it like this.
The Gala Ring launched in October 2014.
Plans to release a stone set version of The Gala Ring have reached fruition, and they are now available from the SCA webstore! Amethyst, Labradorite, Bloodstone and Garnet are currently available. However, you can choose your favourite stone to be set.
I have a special discount for my friends (that’s you). Enter the code MarieKorner10 at the checkout to get 10% off of your purchase. You can visit the SCA store here or click any of the links in this blog post for a specific item.
Alex also takes commissions, so if you feel like you want a one off custom piece, give him a yell. He can take the most basic idea/sketch/description, and turn it into a work of art – hell, you’ve seen my sketch!
