Jade Mellor, Gold Squared, metal, resin, metal dust 2014
This statement ring is hand carved into delicious golden cubes. A mixture of textures on the glittering faces bring out the facets and edges whilst a wide, flat bronze band holds the sculpture firmly in place.
"Pyrite is one of my favourite minerals, the cubic formation has always fascinated me, it looks manufactured with it's crisp metallic edges but builds naturally in this way because of it's unique crystal structure. This ring is my homage to the beautiful mineral. If Fool's Gold is called so because it appears like gold, this must be Fool's Gold Squared."
A lot of time and care has gone into this piece, to look after it please treat as a ceramic as it can break if dropped or knocked against a hard surface. Liquids and perfumes should be avoided. It can be cleaned if necessary with a soft clean, dry cloth.
