Chameleon Ring

£175.00

This ring, of a chameleon looking out onto the world from the comfort of your finger, was the first ring that I ever modelled. He remains one of my most charismatic pieces and regularly steals the limelight when on show.

With customers becoming so enamoured of their chameleon companions that they have given them names (e.g. there’s an Elvis in East Sussex!), what would you name your chameleon ring?

Inspiration for the Chameleon Ring

Chameleons appeared very early on my To Do list. In my initial research, I was absolutely bowled over by pictures of these amazing creatures and captivated by the wonderful personality that is evident in their fantastic and somewhat eccentric appearance. I particularly fell in love with a photo of a baby chameleon clinging precariously to the end of a fine leaf and was determined to capture the magic of that photo. After a bit of experimental design work, my chameleon necklace was born. But it didn’t take long before I started balancing wax chameleon models on my fingers, wondering whether a chameleon ring would work.

In my designs, I (mostly) try very hard to use only that creature to create the overall piece. So I contemplated using the tail as the band of the ring by having it wrapping around the finger. However, I adore the way chameleons completely curl their tails up and so there was only one way to model him.

I often laugh when thinking about creating this ring. Most silversmiths start by making a plain band as the design for their first ring. Mine was a chameleon!
