This elegant coil ring is now made with Fairmined™ 930 Sterling Silver.*
The more elaborate OneAndAHalfFooter is made from one-and-a-half foot of sterling silver wire, which is first forged in various directions, then wound repeatedly into a continuous loop, wrapping around the finger many times without beginning or end. Each ring is unique and different; no two are the same.
This ring generally has 7 loops, but that can vary, depending on how much the metal was forged, and the size of the ring. Average width is 14mm (ca. ½”+).
*Fairmined™ is a standard for ethical and sustainable silver and gold that assures strict environmental and social standards. See Above and Beyond “Recycled” Silver and Gold. I had made these in recycled sterling silver, and while Umicore’s recycled silver standard is very high, it is not necessarily considered the most ethical anymore because conflict silver can make its way into the supply chain. As I learn more, I continue the journey to implement ethically-sourced metals.
