Escaping

Art. 228

This ring is inspired by fire escapes on the outside of old tall brick buildings. Shelley was drawn to the repetition of the lines and patterns and the idea of escape and the need to escape is very interesting to her. She needed to make a ring as a reminder that sometimes escape is needed. This ring was designed to be worn on the index finger. It was fabricated by hand, out of sterling silver wire and sheet metal and has a liver of sulfur patina.
