A client commissioned me to make a ring for a wife to celebrate a special occasion. His rather short brief was that he liked my 'structural rings', but needing a little more to go on I asked if there were any particular landmarks which held special meaning to him and his wife. He suggested the Cathedral of the Virgin Mary of the Immaculate Conception, in Havana.
Using Adobe Illustrator I traced the outline of the cathedrals facade and created a template to make a ring, in a similar style to the structural rings the client had mentioned.
The design doesn't have an immediate visual link to the cathedral, instead looking like an abstract flower and keeping the origins of the design as a special secret between the client and his wife.
