The One Ring to Rule them All

September 29th, 2009

The ring

For my thirtieth birthday I decided to offer myself something I’d been thinking of for a long time: a ring.

Not just any ring, mind, but something special. So when a great friend of mine suggested I take a look at Namu‘s work, I fell instantly in love.

Something about Namu’s work resonated strongly with me, in part due to my passion for all things swords, and he has a line of products that tapped directly into that – he incorporates damascus steel into many items, and in particular: rings!

Here I am

So I ordered one made special for me, which arrived shortly after my birthday and early in the new year.

The story of how it slowly made its way from the US of A and into my waiting hands is a tale for another day.

Fading in a White Sea

A few days back I decided to have some fun shooting the ring. Here are some of the results.
