It seems that the soul… loses itself in itself when shaken and disturbed unless given something to grasp on to; and so we must always provide it with an object to butt up against and to act upon. (Montaigne)
My ring ‚Private Patron‘ reflects on anxiety in social relationships. It symbolises the function for luck and protection. It shows the relationship of the wearer with its object, being a silent witness in two personal narratives. The traditional filligree work retains an insistent sense that it might yet hold some hidden magic.
