Rising - Finger Sculpture
The first and original
jewellery piece paying homage to Renzo Piano's Shard.
Entirely handmade by Kerstin Laibach in recycled silver,
gold and palladium this two finger ring sculpture depicts
London's skyline changer that has risen from the heart the
new London Bridge Quarter and currently the tallest building
in the EU.
The ring merges London's history and future into one truly
iconic jewellery work, with the interior containing a stone
fragment from the Old London Bridge, which was dismantled
at end of the 1960's.
The granite stone from old London Bridge is wrapped with
strands of fine gold, while the skeletal Shard-like form
is made in sterling silver with other elements forged in
palladium or layered with 24 ct gold using the ancient Keum-Boo
(The Shard itself is targeting a BREEAM (environmental assessment)
rating of "excellent", with construction materials made
from 95% recycled.)
A part of profits from the eventual sale of this ring will
be donated to selected wildlife and renaturing projects
in the UK and Africa.
