Here is another of my fine silver band rings that's just slightly bigger than a size 7--about a 7 1/4 or so.  It's tough to get an exact measurement because of the asymmetrical nature of these rings, but this is a very close estimate.  I created it from fine silver PMC by directly pressing the unfired clay into a small piece of golden sandstone found at the Farview area of Mesa Verde.  In fact, the patina on this ring turned out to be almost exactly the same hue as that stone.  I texture clay in two ways: one by impressing it into a mold I made from some natural object, and the other by directly impressing the clay on the object itself.  While the impressed versions have a negative image of the object rather than a positive replica, they seem to capture more of the raw energy of the thing itself, and the place in which it is found if I make the impression onsite. 

This ring is fairly thick and sturdy but it isn't chunky, and the roundness is also fairly uniform. As the ring was shaped I actually put it on my finger and bent the finger over to compress the underside into a narrower band.  This resulted in a more comfortable and interesting shape.  All burs and rough edges were removed and the overall texture has a pleasing softness. 

As you wear it, the ring will acquire a quality and patina that will enrich with age.  The high spots, matte now, will brighten, and you can let it do this or buff it back down periodically to the matte surface by going over it gently with a dry kitchen scrubbing pad. 

Farview with its cluster of ruins lies on top of the mesa, much higher up than the cliff dwellings Mesa Verde is famous for.  I am drawn to this place time and again and its expansive horizons and timeless energy.  This ring carries some of that beautiful feeling.   

SIZE:  The ring size is slightly larger than a 7.   It measures a maximum of 7/8" across, and the widest part is 7/16" tapering to 1/4" beneath the finger.  In millimeters this translates to 22mm across, and 13mm tapering to 6mm wide.

CARE:    Rinse in cool water. The high spots will become shinier as you wear it.  To restore the matte shine, simply buff it gently with a dry kitchen scrubbing pad.
