This beautiful purple-blend mosaic ring was hand-crafted in my studio from teeny, tiny, glass cubes, and millefiori, the lovely Italian 'glass of a million flowers'.
The silver in this ring is sterling silver, and is stamped with the .925 stamp.
This rectangular ring is 30mm x 15mm and 5mm deep.
The ring is fully adjustable to fit all sizes.

The mosaic jewellery I create is crafted from a range of materials, including tiny solid glass cubes, glass tile, mirror tiles, glass rod, filati (super skinny glass strings) and millefiori, the very lovely Italian 'glass of a million flowers'. The pieces are carefully glued into place and then grouted in firmly. To clean your mosaic pendant simply wipe with a gentle damp cloth.
The vintage china I use in my jewellery pieces is all recycled from pieces found at garage sales and op. shops, or through vintage dealers, who are happy to pass on some of their less-than-perfect items. I carefully cut out the selected section of china, shape it by hand, then grind the edges nice and smooth. I securely fix the piece into the sterling silver blank, then grout it so it stays firmly in place.
As with all artisan jewellery, some care needs to be taken to keep your piece in as-new condition. The vintage china in your particular piece could be up to a hundred years old, and needs to be treated accordingly. It is not recommended that you swim or shower whilst wearing your jewellery, nor that you wear it gardening or playing sport or any other activity where the item may get badly knocked. China is breakable, after all.
The sterling silver bezel and the chain will enjoy a regular simple polish with a quality silvercloth. If you do use silver polish, do not get it on the china or the grout. Do not use strong chemicals on your jewellery.
