I chose to design and make a ring based on natural form. I looked at rocks, boulders, stones and pebbles. As a Chemistry Teacher, I have done many experiments involving the weathering of rocks. I liked the appearance of the patterns formed during the process of chemical and physical weathering, and wanted to reflect this in my design. The pattern looked like miniature craters. The ring could either be highly polished, gold plated or the surface oxidised or patinated. Stones could be set such as blue topaz to represent the sea.
