This piece is a lost wax cast silver ring with enamel on top. I like the rugged look that she achieved. The edges of the enamel are visible and patchy, but it works well with the organic shapes. I think it is very clever that the sea squirts have their own turquoise pools of enamel within them--it's a small detail that really makes an impact. Enamel doesn't always look the best, and overdoing it isn't too classy because there is more glass than metal. Her use is effective and not excessive.
