Title of Ring:
50 Cents Medical
sterling, brass, antique tin, tintype, peridot
1 1/8″ tall, 4 mm band
Artist Statement:
I combine interesting objects from the past that have long been forgotten. Antique stores are my hunting grounds and I love the thrill of finding the perfect elements. The juxtaposition of the words 50 cents, Medical, and Die could be a nod to the fate of the gentleman in the tintype but it also speaks to the disparity in our current medical system.
