"Living alone on her phantom globe, beautiful and dressed in her dreams." - Max Ernst.

A 'phantom globe' ring, cast immortal in sterling silver from an antique ring base and a hand carved 'globe', married forever. Hand oxidized in a gloomy gray/black & hand brushed to reveal the silver underbelly of the globe.

This ring has many threads of inspiration. For a while, I've been wanting to make a 'fortune telling' ring and in part this resembles my first version of this inspiration of a crystal ball. Divination and communicating with the spirit world have been inspirations for me since my trip to Lily Dale last summer. The idea of being able to use a stationary object to communicate with those crossed over, or with the inner psyche, a means of communicating with ones self (inner alchemy).

Also, I'm often inspired by the collages of Max Ernst & recently got a hold of a copy of his first collage novel, 'La Femme 100 Têtes' or '100 headless women'. There is a section in the novel that explores a phantom globe & this idea of a globe existing within these surreal landscapes inspired me.

Ring sits approximately 18mm off of the finger and is approximately 24mm at its widest.
