UnJoined Ring

An un-joined ring is a curious thing. I'd never made one, because, up until now, I've had a vague feeling they were too improvised, unresolved, incomplete... An un-specific, un-tailored 'one size fits all'; a last minute wrap-around! But then, I realised those qualities could be positives...
So, I thought up 'Longfellow' , an un-joined gold snake ring. He has a super simple geometry, just guillotined with a few angles and piercings and bent around. The snake motif obviously lends itself to the un-joined band form. I will make several versions...playing with the immediacy of it. It should have the quality of being strikingly crude.
Sort-of a pleasing tension between thoughtful and thoughtless...
