The result of the 2016 presidential election was bad news for a lot of humans who cherish and fight for this planet and its inhabitants. I anguished over the impact that the Trump administration would have on our planet, the American people and those who trust and rely on the USA. I decided to channel my anger and frustration so I sat down at my bench and got to work. I made these black nurdle rings, that evolved a silver lining around each setting. I couldn't see the silver lining through the darkness, so I created some.
$10 from the sale of each of these rings will be donated to the Union of Concerned Scientists. If you aren't familiar with their work, visit their website to learn more about their role in stopping climate change, working toward clean energy and so much more. www.ucsusa.org
What size is your middle finger?
- Gems are black nurdles, rescued from the ocean.
- All recycled eco sterling silver.
- Setting measures 3/8", ring bands made to size.
Nurdles are the pre-production plastic pellets that most plastic consumer goods are made from. They are often found in great numbers on beaches around the world, and are in the top 10% of ocean plastic polluters.
Can't believe that I have a piece of rescued ocean plastic on my finger! The name silver lining is defintely a winner ;) I cannot stress enough how meaningful it is, except that you should just get one for yourself and your loved ones :)
This is the second nurdle ring that I have purchased for myself and fourth overall. I love them!! They are excellent gifts and reminders to all of us about plastic pollution and making commitments to do better opting out of plastic. I even wore my blue nurdle ring on my wedding day to represent “something blue” (full disclosure, I had to provide that nurdle). Can’t recommend these or Kat / Nurdle in the Rough more!
Purchased the silver lining ring as a gift and the recipient loved it. Seller shipped the item within a couple days of my order being processed and I was told it came with a lovely handwritten note thanking the customer for the purchase and their support. Love the concept behind the work and the artist is quite talented, really beautiful jewelry. I’m saving to purchase more!
I love my silver lining ring and what it stands for. I wear it proudly on the appropriate finger. Thank you so much! :)
