I'd made a model for a ring inspired by a detail from Robert Campin's portrait of A Woman C.1435. I admit that I played with the setting a little by giving it 4 cusps creating claws, I still plan to do a silver-gilt version that is utterly faithful to the painting when time allows.
|Sterling silver set with amethyst, I worked the setting into cusped claws.|

|A second ring cast at the same time, waiting for me to make up my mind as to which stone and setting style I want to show!|
