Trilobites and ginkgo both existed during the Cambrian period, crossing paths around 200 Million years ago. While trilobites are now extinct, ginkgo today are considered living fossil, and I wanted to celebrate them together with this piece.
The first in a collection I hope to bring soon, this is an art deco inspired two stone statement ring, featuring a Blue Moon Turquoise and a perfect trilobite fossil with intact cheeks, flanked by hand sawn and engraved ginkgo leaves. @ellojewels #silversmith #metalsmith #ladysmith #turquoise #trilobite #ginkgo #ellosmithy #makersmovement #makersgonnamake #ooakjewelry
I love this photo, because I went out to take photos of my products and was pleasantly surprised to find this beautiful fungus growing on the base wood boards I use for my jewelry photography.
