Phalloi

Phalloi

from 25.00

A winky for your pinky! This little signet ring is a cheeky one - but subtly so.

In Greco-Roman antiquity boys would wear phallic amulets & rings to protect themselves against the evil eye & witchcraft. Then, when they came of age, these amuletic jewels would be burned with their childhood possessions.

This little fella was inspired by some aforementioned artefacts discovered in the V&A and the British Museum.

DETAILS

I carved this ring from jewellers wax, as a teeny little sculpture. It has then been transformed into metal using the ancient-rooted technique of lost-wax casting.

Available in one small size as a pinky ring.
