Before I met this ring, I never really wore jewellery. It caught my eye on a cold winter day while I was strolling through the Chateau Lake Louise in Banff National Park (where I worked) with a good friend (Carly!). I can’t remember what we were doing there at the time, but neither of us had the intention of buying anything. There was something calming and pleasing to me in the design. It was modestly priced for silver and fit my nimble (child like) fingers perfectly. I think I paid about $32.00 for it.
Do you have a personal item that you love? Where did you find it?
I’ve been wearing this ring on my hand now for nearly 8 years. (Carly if you’re reading correct me if I’m wrong). It’s the only thing apart from my tattoo, that has stayed with me this long unchanged. I feel safe with it on.
Mike and I were sitting in a natural hot spring on the side of a mountain road once and we saw the chemical change of silver and sulphur mixing. The ring changed into a dramatic beautiful blue/red/copper temporarily. It recently changed colour when I cleaned it in some boiling water, with aluminium, sodium bi carb and vinegar… to this soft pale creamy silver.
I’ve fiddled and spun it on my finger in a sort of trance while I’ve been in a waiting line…and it’s given me great grief if It’s ever slipped off or I’ve misplaced it.
Like losing my mind grief.
Never in the history of loving an inanimate object has someone loved a thing as much as me and this ring.
