Tree Ring Ring (Dendrochronology)

85.00

This ring has etched bark detail on the outer rim and 5 rings symbolizing 5 years of growth. It is a simple human attempt to recreate the intricate and telling patterns created by trees- the largest living organisms in the world.

  • Sterling silver

  • 5 rings with bark detail

  • Ships in one week

This ring started out as a a ball of soft wax. I then roll out the wax like a pizza, cut the oval and etch in the rings and bark details. Cast in sterling silver, we attach it to a half round ring shank and patina the recesses to darken the silver etchings.

Check out this post to see how a German artist built a computer to "read" the contours of tree rings and "play" them like piano music.

Custom orders welcome. Some people like to order ones with a certain number of rings, or on a different style band. A few times we have done these tree rings on top of bark bands.  Prices can vary depending on size. Email us with your ideas at info@shademetals.com
