The inspiration behind Kathryn’s work comes from her father’s encounters with objects, machinery and tools on her family farm.
The Swivel Ring is made of recycled, scrap sterling silver which is melted down, hammered flat and then the texture is added using my steel tools. Each Ring is unique & each vary slightly in shape and size. The Ring is double sided, one side showing the texture of the black wrap on a silage bale. The other side shows the frog of a horses hoof pressing into the silver. The Ring band is cast in sterling silver with a matte finish.
