Danse Macabre Ring

My new collection is inspired by a chapter from one of my favourite books by Neil Gaiman, “The Graveyard Book”.
There’s a particular chapter called Danse Macabre that describes a scene in which the spirits are leaving their graveyard to dance with the living. It represents the struggle to leave the people you love, the sorrow of being left behind, all that which is unfinished and the magical chance to meet again. Through dance, we pass through sorrow and grief, in search of what is needed to move on in life, or into the great beyond.

This ring really is the hero of the collection and for me represents all that Danse Macabre is, love continues on long after we leave our earthly bodies.

All my pieces are individually created, no two items will ever be alike. This piece is set with a 3mm crystal quartz as a highlight in the background, I wanted to leave the central figures as the main focus without adding any colour to distract from them.

Made from sterling silver, the ring is 30mm wide and 45mm high.
