Materials: sterling silver, Japanese seed beads, resin
Size: 7.5
Dimensions: 1 inch in height; 3.5 inches at longest point; 2.5 inches at widest point

Artist Statement: In this ring, I attempted to capture the exponential branch and bud growth that occurs on the trees in my neighborhood in early Spring, just as the buds promise to blossom, and fashion it around the fingers and hands of the wearer, to convey a sense of intimate connection and involvement.

Artist Bio: Lisa Markowitz is a scientist and organic jeweler, who, when not at her bench, can be found with her dog foraging along the many paths and trails in her hometown of Reston for pieces of nature that inspire her designs and become incorporated into her pieces.
