Materials: sterling silver, ruby, amethyst, rose quartz
Size: 9

Artist Statement:
Erin Austin is a metalsmith from Eureka, CA with a history in Botany and Art. Much of her work is inspired by nature and abstraction. The “growth” ring is the result of combining Erin’s previous work with skeletal leaf forms and abstract floral bouquets. The push and pull of line and form is a nod to the lifecycle of plants and the inevitable life, death, and rebirth of botanicals and the world around us.
