View Finder ~ View Four, Made to Order

“Looking from outside into an open window one never sees as much as when one looks through a closed window.

There is nothing more profound, more mysterious, more pregnant, more insidious, more dazzling than a window lighted by a single candle.

What one can see out in the sunlight is always less interesting than what goes on behind a windowpane.

In that black or luminous square life lives, life dreams, life suffers.

Across the ocean of roofs I can see a middle-aged woman, her face already lined, who is forever bending over something and who never goes out.

Out of her face, her dress, and her gestures, out of practically nothing at all, I have made up this woman's story, or rather legend, and sometimes I tell it to myself and weep.

If it had been an old man I could have made up his just as well.

And I go to bed proud to have lived and to have suffered in some one besides myself.

Perhaps you will say "Are you sure that your story is the really one?"

But what does it matter what reality is outside myself, so long as it has helped me to live, to feel that I am, and what I am?”

~ Charles Baudelaire

Each of my View Finder rings are hand fabricated out of layers of sterling silver sheet made from pencil drawings of my own. Each view has been carefully considered for the shape, length, positive and negative space. While each will be created to match the original, please expect minor variations due to the nature of hand-made. Please indicate whether you’d prefer a smooth band or a textured band as well as your size in the field provided.

Due to the bands being approximately 1 cm wide, I strongly suggest sizing up from your finger measurement to ensure a comfortable fit. I recommend a half to a whole size up, but you know your fingers best.

This design is 2” long. Please see all photos to understand the lengths of the varying designs. They range from everyday wearable to extremely dramatic. Please use common sense when wearing these - they are meant for fashion wear, not for wear while doing housework, exercising, child care or to be used as weapons.

While you don't need to wear this ring with as much care as you do with my stoned talon rings, please do keep in mind that this is a hand fabricated piece of jewelry. Please remove it before engaging in any wet activity to protect the patina.

Please allow 8 weeks from the date of purchase for the completion of all made to order items. While I will try to have them constructed and completed as quickly as possible, I would prefer to have you pleasantly surprised by swiftness, than upset at a day or two delay. If you feel that you cannot wait the requested time allowance for your item to be hand crafted, please choose from my ready to ship options. Anticipated shipping date for all made to order items ordered between 10/26 and 10/28 is 12/11. Please note: if you request a payment plan for anything purchased on these dates or after, your items will not ship prior to the new year. 

By purchasing from Stone Sparrow Design, it is implied that you have read and understand all policies set forth in the policies page of this website.

Thank you! XOXO Marina
