Silversmithery of the past – Ouroboros

Thought I’d run a series of posts highlighting a few of my past shiny works with the story behind them.

I’ll start with the popular Ouroboros series…

Ouroboros Photos and a Blog Without Much Gusto

One Ouroboros Ring, as per Request...

Sterling silver double Ouroboros ring commission image #1. Second commission ever outside of friends and family!!) This guy was one heavy python and a half, crossing over his body in a condensed figure 8 to bite his tail. Pein beaten and burnished, he picked up sticks and now lives the American dream.

Saturday Silversmithery - The Completed Ouroboros Ring

Sterling silver double Ouroboros crossover ring with patina image #1. This guy followed hot on the heels of the first commission. He also went to America to live. A little finer than the first one. I cant decide which I prefer – even now – they each turned out so completely unique.
