Ting Lu | I Am Keeping an Eye on You

Artist: Ting Lu, Georgia
Materials: sterling silver, wood, glass, steel spring
Size: 6

Artist Statement: Just for the fun of it! This ring is a rotating shaft reciprocating machine. With over 30 soldering joints and dangling moving parts, it is an extensively engineered statement ring. You will not be bored wearing it. Everyone will be drawn to this toy on your finger. It's a ring, and it's a pendant - just turn it around and use the ring shank as the bail. A leather necklace is provided.

Artist Bio: Metalsmithing is a unique process to create artwork with the applications of math, physics, and chemistry. I consider myself a "jack of all trades" with a diverse set of metal fabrication skills and utilization of multimedia materials. Occasionally I dabble into lapidary and enamel/cloisonne to produce my own gemstone to fit a certain design. I love to make playful kinetic jewelry with movement. I also like to offer multi-purpose jewelry pieces that give customers the options of wearing. Commissions are welcome. Please check out my work and contact me. Facebook: Let-It-Flow studio.
