My newest ring obsession....the pebble stacking ring from Spiral Stone
I have always wanted to visit the other side of the world, mainly the coastline of Australia and New Zealand. I am definitely a "beach" person at heart...I have simply always loved the majestic zen feel about it.
So as I was perusing the ring section of Etsy (a very bad habit I have), and I happened upon this most amazing ring. Besides the beautiful handcrafted work and gorgeous combination of dark/light stones with silver, I also loved the story behind it.
This one-of-a-kind ring, a little piece of wearable art, was created from small pebbles that the Australian artist collected on a "recent visit to a wild and stony beach along the rugged coastline of New Zealand".
As fate would have it, she had made it in my exact size, so it was basically meant for me. It arrived today and I couldn't love it more.
If you love her naturally organic yet modern style, I'd recommend taking a look at her blog and reading about her inspiration, as well as visiting her amazing shop Spiral Stone.
Happy Australia Day! (Jan. 26th)
