This ring is the spirit of Frida, frozen into silver. July 6 is her birthday, celebrate with this ring. Here I wish to show a great oneness with nature and culture. The skull with flowers in the eyes sees love all around but blinded by beauty.The big nostrils are wide open to remind us to take a breath of prana. This ring screams love not war. The stones are the planets that we all live with and the same ones Frida saw. On the side of the ring is a half face of the moon. This shows that we like frida hide part of ourselves to everyone. On the other is the full shinny sun to celebrate life and shower us with flowers and love. This ring is a real celebration of life and death.
There is also a rose on one side, this is the great Diego Rivera.
The Mother of Pearl Skull carved by Ruben measures 1 1/8" tall and 3/4" wide. The bottom of the ring shank is 5/8 " wide.
I always love seeing pictures of Frida with her braids gathered on top of her head in an old Tehuana style from Mexico. I remember my Grandmother's braids that way sometimes.
Each ring is designed, hand made,and personally signed and dated by Ruben Xolotol Viramontes.
I will carve the skull for each order little changes may occur, they are one of a kind carvings, also material color may vary a little.
