Frances Julie Whitelaw

Silver ring commission from jewellery collector Tuan Lee

Tuan was drawn to the minimalist and architectural qualities of two of my ring designs. The challenge of the commission was to realise extremes of scale with the circle and square to sit across the hand.

Making this ring was a unique opportunity to design and make a piece combining big visual impact, fine detail and practicality of wearing.
