Mountain Rings – samples
Custom appliquéd hand done construction and engraving with custom chip inlay, multi-metal 2-tone ,silver, platinum, and all golds . ( from 10k to 18k in Yellow, white, rose or green gold ). Lakes are turquoise chips and sun or moon have gem stones such as diamonds, ruby or emeralds for a little sparkle. Specific requested mountains a specialty.
A common theme for these mountains is to do a custom piece for people that met on a certain mountain, or proposed, or go there consistently or just because they see it all day long out of their window.
Their favorite mountain.
These are the basic categories but there are many others that can be made for you, such as extremely thin and delicate outlined mountains or wire formed mountains. Let’s us know what you have in mind.
As far as I know THE ORIGINAL Mountain design ring.
I have challenged anyone to show me a similar mountain ring design that was created before 1998. ( I saved a sealed document with all my designs every year since 1987 ) No one has responded. As far as I know every mountain design was ‘ inspired ‘ from my designs . With the advent and use of laser and computer assisted design outdoor scenes, wildlife scenes and intricate landscapes were developed after our original designs. It seems as soon as the market gets ahold of a person’s intellectual or artistic property then all bets are off for credit or compensation.
So it goes for us who break new ground and are inspired to create unique art.
Flattery ??? possibly….
