I recently designed this Lucite flower ring…

Pencil and Gouache Lucite Flower Ring Rendering by Joana Miranda

…liked the design so much that I went to the bench and made the ring.

"Ring Around the Rosy" Ring by Joana Miranda

“Ring around the Rosy

Pocket full of Posy

Ashes, Ashes,

We all Fall Down”

(Not the innocent nursery rhyme it seems.  You can read about it here.)

I wasn’t thinking of the black plague – or any other disease – when I made the ring.

But giving the ring a black patina really provided a great contrast to the lovely frosted Lucite flower.

The name seemed very fitting as a result.
