Ring collection

This ring collection was created by recycling old, corroded pipes – its main objective is to expand the boundaries of useless junk, upcycling it, combining it with goldsmith’s techniques to make the object wearable. The main sources of inspiration were abandoned city spaces and their fragments, most common of them being a corroded pipe, which became the main motif. The rings are unique because of the process, in which no industrial techniques work were applied – the gemstones were polished and set by the author himself.
