Craftsmanship is Often a Simple Proposition

 

Paper Ring

I had a customer one time who wanted to propose, but his girlfriend was ultra-practical and didn’t want him to spend money on a diamond ring. She told him that any ring would do, as it was what it represented that was most important. She told him it could be made of paper for all she cared.

Inspired by the gum wrapper chains we made as kids, this is the ring I made for him, scaled to be the correct finger size for her, and crafted from acid free cotton paper, to keep it from turning yellow and getting brittle over time.
