My name is Violette Noble and I am an artist who loves to search far and wide for bits and baubles whose origins may not be fully known but are always antique, rare, eclectic or just plain odd.
I use these fantastic finds in all my jewelry designs and each piece is created by me and is entirely unique.
Up for your approval today an WILDLY AMUSING steampunk ring that began life as a "mechanical" brass beetle. He has been fitted with wheels and a tiny screw from an antique pocket watch AND antiqued brass wings so he can FLY!
He's been securely mounted to an ornate antiqued ring base and I think he's loads of FUN! His wing span is 1 1/2" and he is about 1" tall. I positioned the end of the wings in an "up" position to make it more comfortable to wear.
The filigree is very easily adjusted for your finger size.
The brass findings I use are still being produced using the same...now antique...machines they used so many years ago and the enterprise is still owned by the family that originated it. I oxidize them by hand and polish them so that just a little of the original brass shows through. This gives them that PERFECT vintage patina.
Each and every piece in my jewelry line has been meticulously designed and created in such a way as to last for years to come.
All finery will arrive in a handsome be-ribboned gift box making it the perfect remembrance for friends and loved ones alike.
