This round, pod shaped ring is open to be explored; the delicate silver pod reveals its fragile and delicate lavender seeds. The focus of this piece is protection – I have explored the concept of pods, and have found that perceptions of what is precious can be fascinating. For example, here the most valuable material is the silver with which the ring is made. However, when one looks at the fragile seeds concealed inside, the metal takes on a protective role, making the seeds the more precious items.
