ISTANBUL RING - Sophia
Textile & Crystal Ring - Sophia
A burst of colour in copper & yarn - this is delicately hand crocheted & hand stitched using a mixed media of double-entwined coloured copper wire, luxury hand-dyed yarn and swarovski crystal.
The fiery yarn colours remind me of the warm glowing interior of the 'Hagia Sophia' in Istanbul. Originally built as a cathedral, it was then converted into a mosque by the Ottomans and is now a national museum.
The luxury yarn used for this design is a 100% merino, hand-dyed by Jess of Olann yarns who is based in Ireland.
The outer part of the ring is hand crocheted with the yarn, which encompasses shades of red, brick, burnt-orange and yellow.
The inner part is hand crocheted with red and gold-plated copper wires and embellished with a matching swarovski crystal in red, surrounded by antique-gold glass beads.
The ring has a silver-plated base and is totally adjustable.
The diameter of it's face/top measures approximately 2.8 cm across.
The wire colour may vary slightly depending on the reel batch, and how the yarn colours fall within the piece may vary depending on which part of the yarn I start crocheting with, but any variation will be very slight. Each ring will be unique and one-of-a-kind. The swarovski crystal and glass beads will be identical to the sample image.
These pieces are made with specialist hand-dyed yarn, which may not always be available, so they are made in small quantities, and would therefore be limited in number.
They are a made-to-order item, so please allow at least 3 weeks for delivery for UK & Europe, and 6 weeks for USA & Worldwide.
This item will be shipped by first class/international.
