"You can't smell the flowers on your grave"_ 304 stainless steel, rose petals_ 1"x1"x0.5"_ 2022
To "stop and smell the roses" is to be mindful of the present moment. To be aware of your surroundings and to take in the experience of simply being alive. This ring was inspired by traditional memento mori and victorian mourning jewelry. Taking the form of a hollow construction ring, this hand fabricated stainless steel ring houses dried rose pedals as a token reminder to take the time to consciously appreciate this beautifully ephemeral life.
