Courtney Denise Lipson | Hovering Bumblebee Ring

Artist: Courtney Denise Lipson, Washington
Materials: sterling silver, 18kt gold, micro-mosaic, citrine
Size: 8

Artist Statement: A glittering micro-mosaic bumblebee to hover over your finger. The band design incorporates honeycomb and floral designs, including a honey-hued citrine. Due to the shape of the ring shank it will fit a range of finger sizes from 7.5 to 9; if you have larger knuckles, the space at the top of the ring shank will slide over the knuckle sideways and still sit securely on your finger.

Artist Bio: From my studio in Bellingham, Washington I have been creating micro-mosaic heirlooms for over 20 years. Micro-mosaics encourage us to look closer and contemplate the world around us. There is wisdom to uncover as we explore our environments, I use my art as a catalyst for discovery.

This ring was part of Battle of the Rings: Ring Smackdown 2023, an online exhibition and competition. View the entire collection HERE, view the matches HERE, and learn more HERE.
