Carrie Haase - Dawn of Television

Artist: Carrie Haase
Materials: recycled tv glass, sterling silver
Size: 9 1/2 
Dimensions: 1/2" x 5/8" at its widest 

Artist Statement:
I stumbled upon some amazing TV glass and felt compelled to create this one of kind cocktail ring. I decided to elevate the stone to allow light to pass through from all angles, simulating the glow of an old tube television. The oxidized sterling silver base was fabricated with an architectural, slightly art deco design in mind. The base and the glass conjure thoughts of an era where skyscrapers and television rose and inspired the day.

Artist Bio:
I have been designing and creating jewelry for over 20 years. I am inspired by architecture and nature, while my jewelry celebrates geometry and geology, and the meeting of the two. When I'm not in my home studio working, I can often be found rummaging for unique gemstones from all over the world.
