Her Kind Ring ✦ Size 9 1/4 to 9 1/2 ✦ The Thistle Armory Collection
“I have found the warm caves in the woods, filled them with skillets, carvings, shelves, closets, silks, innumerable goods; fixed the suppers for the worms and the elves: whining, rearranging the disaligned. A woman like that is misunderstood. I have been her kind.”
This piece is inspired by the wayside witch, by the cottages of wise women, situated on the edges of forests and surrounded by thistle-laden hedges, and by the above words from “Her Kind” by Anne Sexton. Three glowing natural amethysts sit surrounded by a magical arrangement of natural trinkets and energetic artifacts: bare branches, leaves, pebbles, moons, and thistles. I’ve made this design twice before, once with turquoise (and seashells instead of the thistles) and once with watermelon tourmaline (and roses instead of the thistles). They each hold a special place in my heart. This ring is an ode to “women like that”. It is a protective totem for she who practices her craft in solitude. My maker's mark and .925 for sterling adorn the underside of the ring, and the entire piece has been blackened and sanded to highlight the details and heighten the magic.
