Rings are universal symbols of bonds. They are objects filled with sentiment and memory. Objects forged in hard metal, cold and indestructible, unlike the fleeting, memories they represent. The beautiful moments we find in life are precious and organic; delicate and ephemeral; melting away with time. Instead of hard metal attempting to immortalise memories, this ring celebrates the fleeting beauty of a handful of organic moments: the resin, a thin veil for the fading memories it holds.
