Full fathom five. Sting ray barb studs. – Blood Milk Jewels


Based on my love of the magic of the sea, the 'Sea Witch' series features inspiration from Shakespeare's 'The Tempest', Hans Christian Anderson's version of 'The Little Mermaid' and Sylvia Plath.

Mimicking the blades of a trident, these sea daggers are made of castings of the tips of a sting ray barb, re-imagined into a pair of sterling studs, and hand oxidized to achieve my favorite shade of gloomy gray.

Based around the father figure character in Sylvia Plath's poem 'Full fathom five', which also references Ariel's song in 'The Tempest,' these studs are an homage to the sea god & to the father lost to the sea.

The studs are 2 inches long, and completely composed of sterling silver.
