Workbench Journal – Floral Mother’s Ring

Tuesday, 3 PM

The Mother’s Ring is a very personal piece of jewelry, one that is likely to be passed on from one generation to the next, it’s significance carrying the weight of an unfolding story of shared blood, wisdom, trials, victories and life. Not just any ring will do.

Dean and Bronwyn Decker, of The Cupboard Deli & Bakery, stopped by to speak with Silvio after they had shopped around for a Mother’s Ring. They did come across a few at various jewelry stores, but these felt rather anonymous and lacked the right touch, the right spirit. Bronwyn indicated she would like a flower to be central to the design, along with a garnet, and that two other birthstones needed to be included: peridot and emerald.The ring itself would be made of 14K gold.

Silvio went to work, sketching an idea and soon they agreed on a final design. At first they considered including a few, small, decorative diamonds, but opted for a simpler design, one that would be more suitable to Bronwyn’s fine hands, both in terms of visual appeal and comfort.

“It is possible to buy components of flowers and leaves and settings and bring them together, or actually assemble a ring,” notes Silvio, “but I prefer to make everything from scratch. The final product has a completely different look, feel and energy. It has more life.”

The Garnet, in the center, is the January birthstone. It is associated with refinement and discernment. The Emerald is the birthstone for May and it is a symbol of renewal and hope. Peridot is one of the birthstones of August. it represents purity and loyalty.
