"...cerca de la madera de la selva olorosa, hija de las raíces de la tierra." - Pablo Neruda (XVIII, Las piedras del cielo)

"Stones of the Sky" has been an inspiration for me over the past few years, always at arms reach from my workbench.  Cut with a jewelers saw from sheet metal, this ring was stamped with 90+ characters, soldered, formed, oxidized and finished by hand.  The ends have been flared slightly for a comfortable fit.

"...close to the wood of the fragrant forest: the earth's root child." - Pablo Neruda
