A very early carved ring by Barbara, I’m surprised how many pieces (commissions) escaped without photo documentation. This is from 2005 and is listed in the ‘commissions-the lot’ list. So reminds me of early Han Chinese carving, clouds & spirits working their magic. Settings checked and the usual clean . . .
