Volcano Vessel Ring II

Early spectrum shades of flame orange and marigold
surrounded by clean work
and gorgeous gleaming copper
which will patinate to a beautiful autumn hue.

My volcano cones are a labor of love: multiple firings and counter-firing give the metal its made-up face, dressing copper up for a night at the opera.

In the center of the vessel sits a high-domed piece of Kingman turquoise
delicious and almost outrageous in its mineral hue.

Perfect band in size 6, gleaming sterling

fits boldly and best on an 'inner' finger: middle or ring
with beautiful code hammered in
whose meaning only I know

It is a prayer and speaks of abundance
and enough.

a bit later.
