The Ring Pop was named late in the creation process, as meticulous hand polishing revealed a candy-like appearance with these hand crafted rings. The first of a series of limited edition, hand carved exotic wood and acrylic rings, the Sailor Edition features original antique sail boat pulley monograms inlayed in Honduras Mahogany and is limited to a collection of 10 one-of-a-kind rings.
Each ring is carved out of a hand-picked section of Honduras Mahogany wood planks for its coloring, grain and knots. Taking antique sail boat monograms from wood pulleys, the brass emblems are polished and screwed into the raw wood rings. A bullet-proof clear acrylic dome is then hand glued on top. Cautious of chemical reactions between the wood, brass and acrylic (which would show up in the form of bubbles or cracks), the ring takes several days to set to ensure a flawless finish. Once the materials have set the ring is sanded, reshaped and hand polished. The naturally gorgeous color of Honduras Mahogany called for a minimal treatment of bees wax and orange oil.
Due to the artisanal nature of the Ring Pop slight imperfections or irregularities are considered unique qualities in each one-of-a-kind wearable piece of art.
