Geoscape Ring

Gold & Silver Ring

Created by Marne Ryan
 Marne Ryan's rings are hand fabricated. The texture of the metal is created by using a torch to create surface patterns, and by using a rolling mill to roll patterns into the metal. After several sheets of this textured sterling silver or high karat gold are joined together using a technique called fusing - (metal joined together using a torch at high temperatures without solder), Ryan cuts out sections of the layered sheets to create each ring. 24kt gold is fused to the front and back surface of the ring, further adding to its uniqueness. Then a strip of 22 karat gold is fused onto the back of the silver giving a more sensuous feel to the skin and creating a more durable ring. Finally, 18k pale yellow gold frames are soldered to the top and bottom edges of the ring following its contour. Each ring is then polished and put into a solution to darken the silver. It is polished again to highlight some of the ridges in the silver. This surface patina will change over time according to the wearers skin chemistry and these natural skin oils will give the ring a unique luster.

Comments about Geoscape Ring, Sizes 6 - 8:

I met Marne Ryan at a craft show in Santa Monica and fell in love with her work. My ring is almost identical to this one and I've worn it every day for eight years. My husband has a different design and wears it as his wedding band. Each piece is one of a kind because of the hand forging and how the patina changes over time. Mine is more beautiful than the day I bought it.

The fit is so comfortable. I can't feel it on and it never snags. The elegant gold and silver design goes with everything. The weight of the ring feels substantial but not too heavy. I absolutely love it! I also have a cuff bracelet of hers that looks similar in design to the sapphire and diamond ring, but without the gemstones, and I wear that every day, too. Just wow! Not inexpensive, but worth every dollar for the superior craftsmanship. Marne is also a true pleasure to work with.
