Doesn’t this ring just grab you? It’s a remarkable piece from Anne Arden McDonald whose Etsy shop, ardent1, is hands down my favorite find of the week. She creates jewelry from organic matter which is then cast in metal. The process is fascinating. A relationship develops from the pieces origins and its current, metal state that makes me stop, look a little longer.
Although I am a soup and spaghetti budget type of girl in her middle late 20s, I’m totally digging McDonald’s prices because they’re confidently saying “Hey, this isn’t easy, but the final product is really gorgeous so you should save up for this if you really love it,” which I probably will, because I do.
Plus, I’m a sucker for anything remotely fiddlehead-y. Now I’m off to spend some time at McDonald’s website to get impressed and inspired while anxiously watching election results.
Goodnight, my little voters!
