This sterling silver Brodgar Eye ring in a larger ‘dress’ size is hand-enamelled in Misty in our workshop in Orkney. The design measures approximately 28mm in diameter and sits on a 5mm band.
This contemporary collection was inspired by Neolithic cup-and-ring rock carvings found at the Ness of Brodgar in Orkney. Lying between the great ceremonial stone circles of Brodgar and Stenness, the Ness has revealed more decorated stones than any other Neolithic excavation.
Sheila has imitated the stone texture of the cup-and-ring carvings through a technique known as reticulation. The design is then hand-enamelled to simulate rain gathering in the carved stone.
