Rui Kikuchi - 'THE FLOWERS WILL BLOOM THIS SPRING' Ring.




















You are bidding on a lovely little piece of springtime, or, in the words of this Japanese jeweller Rui Kikuchi, a hope for springtime, "as it will give us time to recover, restore and help each other".

Title: Ring (The Flowers Will Bloom this Spring)
Materials: Sterling silver
Ring size: M
Dimensions: Diameter 18mm x 23.5 mm Height

The ring is designed to be placed on the finger from the side and then rotated upright so that a wearer with large knuckles or even arthritis can gently put it on.

Rui lives in Kyoto but grew up in Sydney so has many friends there.  Besides working with her hands she also likes reading about fossils and other ancient things.


Please note the ring size given in the details above. The size is given in the Britsh/Australian measuring system. For conversions please click on the chart supplied in the links column on the right.
