Solid silver ring with Black Oxide or Whitened silver surface. Made from carved honeycomb and cast in sterling silver.
Made in collaboration with honeybees; Beca Beeby's sculptural jewellery is inspired by the natural forms found in nature: in cellular structures; cracked mudflats; insect wings and in honeycomb.
Becas Wild Honeycomb range began life as real honeycomb from her own honeybees.
This ring is one of Beca's favourites, made once she had perfected her technique and developed the style.
Each piece is unique, made over months in Beca's workshop in Wales. Made in sterling silver, the work is oxidised or 'whitened' and matt-polished as Beca prefers this look, the work will take on a further patination and polish personal to the wearer.
This ring has a black oxide applied by the artist, the high points will become more polished as it is worn: There are two images of the ring without the black oxide.
Beca practices her skills in the most sustainable ways possible: she uses recycled metals; avoids any use of toxic chemicals-using citric and oxalic acid for pickling and etching; her workshop is solar powered and all packaging is recycled as many times as possible. Beca's inspiration comes from the natural world and she protects it in whatever ways she can.
