This is the wonderful The love inside #5 ring by Colleen Baran. She is a multidisciplinary artist (working in jewellery, photography and book-work) from Canada. She exhibits her work internationally and has been published in North America. Her work is based on a love of language pattern and form, as show well in in her The love story #5 ring. The ring is individually handmade of sterling silver and mylar paper that can be cut but not torn. It has bold, subtle and brave declarations of love hidden within. You can write your own little secret notes for your sweetheart to carry with them. Just slide the little story inside the ring..... It is one of a series of rings that in some way or another carry a love story and it is my personal favorite! The love inside #5 is a simple and sleek structure that has a hidden romantic side to it. This makes wearing (and giving) the ring incredibly personal without showing it off in the design.
