Swim my Manta-way…
|Material:||Blackened Sterling Silver|
|Dimension:||48 x 23 x 2mm|
As an avid diver, John feels at home in the ocean. When his mum contacted me to request a custom piece for his birthday, I was excited by the idea of creating a custom made piece of jewellery for an adventurer and leaped into the brainstorming process. It needed to be sturdy and durable to withstand John’s adventurous lifestyle. The Manta Ray is his favourite animal and he has spent endless hours travelling all corners of the globe to dive with these majestic creatures, so this seemed like the perfect place to start.
I chose an industrial strength cord so it would be fit for an adventurer. I then engraved Manta Rays swimming around the surface of the metal with a message ‘for John’ engraved on the back. This piece is made from 100% recycled sterling silver with a brushed and blackened surface, created with a natural sulphur oxide.
This bracelet will travel with John on all his newest adventures and he can always look down and think of his lovely Mum. Happy Birthday John and enjoy your travels with a squadron of Manta Ray friends!
“I was introduced to Coral Covey through friends as I was looking for a gift for my sister, Cara. Not being a wearer of jewellery myself I loved the elegance of Laura’s work. I purchased the Folded Form Earrings and my sister loved them! I highly recommend Coral Covey for anybody looking for unique design with expert craftsmanship”
“In a world awash with jewellery, I have so rarely found a jeweller who places so much importance on minimising the environmental impact of their work as Laura does with Coral Covey. Brilliant!”
“I have commissioned Laura to design and create several pieces for me and my expectations have been exceeded every time. Her passion for both the origins of materials and commitment to telling a story is in itself shear artistry.”
