Alphabet-F Ring Design

Alphabet-F Ring Perspective

Here are my thoughts and ideas behind the Alphabet-F ring

The concept

My initial concept for this piece was meant to be more ridge, more clean lines to connect the Alphabet-F. Along the way, I felt I wanted to take this opportunity to try out something more incline towards the randomness of things rather the more predictable pattern of creating the Alphabet series.

Evolving style

In this Alphabet-F ring, it does evolve from the Alphabet-E ring, which I first introduce the folding surface style. This piece is different from the E ring is because of the uneven slope, guided by the unparalleled lines to form the face of F.

Folding style of the face

This in result in series of uneven surface reflecting off different intensity of light, bringing the curious beholder to ask the question of what is the meaning behind these mysterious geometries.

The side of the Alphabet-F ring design

I’m always careful not to overwhelm the ring side design and also not to deviate too far from the principle of the face. I want it to suggest the shape of F and yet in harmonic compliment with each other. With this idea in mind, I cutted deep into the front face from left to the upper right so this result with a slant recess to the supposily flat surface.

You maybe assume the side recess of the ring to be just an ordinary straight cut right into the cold metal but, this is not how I want to end the story in designing this ring. I got this idea to have this gradient cast of light into the recess, so I made it to be a curve recess into the metal, like a disk that crash right into it, only to be half way through stuck on the surface and fall off.

An arch metal bar was erect over the slant recess like a bridge over a river to form the backbone of the F. When view at an angle with the side and the face together, you can see how these two facet truly blend in harmony.

I started to play around digital graphics software back when Photoshop was not living in the cloud and Corel Draw was a serious contender. Actually, I like Corel Draw more than Adobe products. Not very long later, when I was shopping for a new t-shirt, I realized that locally in Singapore, you don't really have a lot of choices except those that come with a big name attached to the collar along with big price tag. Then came along with the print on demand services online where I can set up and order my own prints. It was really cool and I don't have to pay a large sum of money. Plus point. Fast forward to today I'm doing 3D rendering and printing. I even printed my own Gold wedding ring haha... Since then I'm addicted to jewellery design. To support my hobby, I sell the t-shirt to support my blog. Feel free to look around and drop me a message.
