Part of Skye’s horticulturally inspired design project called Fjell (Norwegian for mountain), this brass ring base with a burnished copper finish displays a seashell from the northern coast of California surrounded by a golden silk cocoon, with a tiny quartz crystal that Skye found in an abandoned gold mine in the Sierras nestled within it. A tiny piece of lichen collected from an old rose bush in Calistoga, CA keeps the crystal company. The adjustable ring band makes it easy to wear a bit of earth magic on your hand.

About The Artist
Skye Bergen only understands the world around her by touching it. She works in plants, textiles, fibers, paint, photography, resin, sculpture, music, and sound to make both wearable and non-wearable art. She makes noise and grows things. Skye is obsessed with pearls and lichen. Having discovered the therapeutic powers of gardening a few years ago, Skye decided that her ultimate life goal is to create and build a grief therapy garden in Sacramento for the public, dedicated to those living with mental illness.
