Margaret Jacobs Sterling Silver Lapis Lazuli Ring

Margaret Jacobs makes bold jewelry with a contemporary flair. This sterling silver ring is tarnished to give it an old-fashioned look. The lapis lazuli cabochon is set at the edge of the ring for additional interest. The stone itself has pyrite and other inclusions, giving it a depth that you would not get from a solid color lapis lazuli stone.

The ring is shaped to fit a finger nicely, as our fingers are not round.

Size 8; band is 3/16 inch wide; stone is 1/2 inch in diameter.

MARGARET E. JACOBS 

ARTIST’S STATEMENT

I believe in the importance of objects and their power to relay narratives.

In my work I am not only speaking about cultural heritage and significance but I am also exploring the relationships between man and nature.

I am very interested in creating harmony with contradicting materials. I primarily use steel, pewter and natural materials such as deer hair, porcupine quills, and leather. By intermingling contemporary and traditional materials, I am exploring how traditional culture and knowledge can thrive in a contemporary world. Steel gives a heavy visual/conceptual weight and is lightened by graceful rabbit fur—permanence is countered by impermanence, black is countered by vibrant color.
