sterling silver woven ring in a size 9

Anthia Barboutsis

Cage Ring - sterling silver ring made with anticlastic forming and depletion gilding techniques.

Anticlastic forming is a traditional silversmithing technique where sheet metal is formed by compressing the middle section and stretching out the edges, creating two curves in opposing directions. 

Depletion gilding is a finishing technique that makes silver turn snow white in colour accomplished through several heat cycles which cause the fine silver content to rise to the surface and turn white. 

Size 9 (1.3 x, 2021.
