Metal: 925 sterling silver, Patina coloring
Mountain: Nachtsöllberg Ski Resort, Westendorf, Austria
The original custom mountain ring was perfect for this design.
I used minimal lines to add texture to the outline of the main flatirons.
We finished the ring with a shiny, polish finish.
Grace had visited the Nachtsöllberg every year – sometimes 3 times a year – since she was three years old. She usually skied this Austrian mountain in February, over her birthday.
Her whole family would join in on the skiing birthday celebration, but this year, COVID through quite a wrench into the annual plans.
Since she couldn’t ski this year, I created a ring of the mountain so she could wear her memory all season long. Actually, it’s a memory she can wear forever and always have with her.
