Silversmithery of the past – Ouroboros

Thought I’d run a series of posts highlighting a few of my past shiny works with the story behind them.

I’ll start with the popular Ouroboros series…

One Ouroboros Ring, as per Request...

Sterling silver double Ouroboros ring commission image #1. Second commission ever outside of friends and family!!) This guy was one heavy python and a half, crossing over his body in a condensed figure 8 to bite his tail. Pein beaten and burnished, he picked up sticks and now lives the American dream.

Saturday Silversmithery - The Completed Ouroboros Ring

Sterling silver double Ouroboros crossover ring with patina image #1. This guy followed hot on the heels of the first commission. He also went to America to live. A little finer than the first one. I cant decide which I prefer – even now – they each turned out so completely unique.
