50s formica silver ring



I've just collected a silver ring I commissioned someone to make with some original 50s patterned formica that I bought recently. Am really pleased with result and am going to save up to have a bright red one made too!

Congratulations on your piece in 'Coast' - it came through my letter box this morning. Loving the red and white spot coat. I shall look forward to a proper read later.

How cool. You could also have some groovy cuff links made in a similar design.

OH MY GOD! I love this ring, that's such an awesome idea. Ages ago I saw somewhere on the internet some fantastic rings that used sections of 50's ceramics with similar fantastic results. I really wish I could remember where I saw them!

That´s beautiful! What a great idea! There´s a woman here in Sweden who makes jewellery from pieces of old plates and such, from the pretty patterns from the 50s and 60s, like Berså. You can see her things here: http://www.signerat.se/butik/halsband/bersa-blad-halsband/index.php
