Midweek Modness: Pewter and Pottery Ring

Ceramic pewter mod ring

I’m digging this pewter and ceramic ring because it contains so many Mid Century themes and materials. It has handicraft in the form of the earth brown glazed pottery piece in the middle. It uses pewter — so favoured by the Scandinavians. And it has a minimalist abstracted form that reminds me of a stylized owl, eagle or fish (depends on which way you look at). It’s also big so it really makes a statement.

Unfortunately it is not marked in any way. But I look at it and instantly recognize it as the type of jewellery that the moms had in their jewellery boxes when I was a kid — pieces they probably collected from before us kids were born.
