These hand-carved Daisies are a labor of love from start to finish. With a hand-cut stone on stone center, this piece is 3-dimensional and cute and hell. This technique is one I learned working under the guidance of Michael Boyd, who really pioneered this skill in the contemporary art-jewelry world.
Jewelry from The Universe Conspires delivers an exceptionally rare level of both craftsmanship and concept. It is sculptural yet informed by the natural properties of stones that are inlayed, bezel set, and beautifully carved to enhance their vibrance. Every piece is handmade, start to finish, by artist Bri McGrew, in her Colorado Springs Studio. These pieces are made-to-order and truly heirloom.
This item is shipped directly from the maker! This means you may receive your order in multiple shipments (if you are ordering more than one item) and if it is being made-to-order, please be mindful of the designer's individually allocated lead times! We are proudly connecting our customers and the designers we love in a direct way in the hopes that we can support other small businesses in tandem with our own!
DETAILS AND HOW TO ORDER
The two options are:
1- Willow Creek Jasper with Amazonite and 14k gold — please note: I cracked the top stone while setting it for photos. I’ll be cutting a new Amazonite circle to replace it, so it will be slightly different than the photo (and better i.e. not cracked and wonky. There’s also some darkness dust present in the cracks which is buffing compound from the ring polishing process).
2- Transvaal Jade with Mookaite and 14k gold
If you choose the necklace option, I have several chains in your desired length. The Daisy will be bezel-set.
Choose your style and stone to be made into the piece of your dreams! All work will be made in sterling silver unless otherwise noted. Available styles are pictured.
If interested in a gold ring option, I’m happy to give you a quote based on the market price. Send me an email! *JSYK, gold is an investment and will likely at least triple the price of the ring in silver. There are some more affordable options, including add a 14k bezel to an otherwise silver piece. If you’d like to ensure your stone choice (which I highly recommend) please purchase your choice in silver before emailing.
~Every purchase of a stone piece comes with a polishing cloth. This is to be used to polish any solid (unplated) metal. Avoid the stones as this can dull the finish.
*Please note that made-to-order work may take up to 8 weeks to be shipped, but will likely ship much more quickly.
ALL SALES ARE FINAL and I’m not able to offer ring resizing. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
5% of purchase will be donated to your choice of organization listed below:
-Trans Asylum Seeker Support Network
“Our goal is to free all transgender asylum seekers languishing in detention centers and help them relocate to and create thriving lives in Western Massachusetts. We understand that the work to free trans asylum seekers is deeply connected to the the overarching goal of abolition of all prisons and detention centers, militarized borders, imperialism, and the capitalist system which allows corporations in the US to extract as much labor and profit as possible from Mexico and Central America, while restricting migration through colonial borders. Our mission is driven by an understanding of the interconnectedness of our work with similar movements such as worker organizing, tenant organizing, Palestine solidarity, prison abolition, Black liberation, anti-imperialism, and Indigenous sovereignty.”
-NDLON Immigrant Safety Net Fund
“A significant segment of migrant workers have worked in our country for decades, everyone has benefited and enjoyed the fruits of their labor, but yet, despite their years of contributions, their humanity has been denied. As a result, essential migrant workers do not have a basic safety net to survive. Their only safety net is their immediate family members, their worker centers, and their community-based organizations.”
“The most powerful tool for defense is the law. Our legal work has saved irreplaceable wildlands, cleaned up the air we breathe, and fueled the rise of 100% clean energy. It has protected countless species on the brink of extinction, and secured long-overdue, historic limits on our nation’s worst polluting industries. When we go to court, we get results. And we’re able to do this with the generous support of people like you.”
