These rings have been inspired by the forms of Massai hand tools, taken from Karen's first hand research, and created by the traditional silver smithing ‘lost wax’ technique. This means that they have been hand carved, moulded and cast into silver, it is then polished and pattinated in Karen’s South London studio. The rings work well stacked together and mix oxidised silver with a high finish satin polish.
