tiny bone ring
Cast from a single tiny pelvis bone extracted from an owl pellet.
Owls swallow their prey whole but are unable to digest bones and fur. They regurgitate the undigested parts of their prey as what are known as owl pellets. Based on the other bones found in the same owl pellet this pelvis bone likely came from a field mouse or similar small rodent. You can see the rounded socket in the bone where the femur would attach.
Life and nature's cycles. Beginnings, endings, and what endures.
All Thicket rings have the option to be given as a gift since knowing someone's ring size and which finger they'd like to wear a given ring on can be tricky! Place your order for the ring choosing the "give as a gift" option in the size menu and you'll receive the PDF for a beautiful, printable card to give to your loved one. They'll choose the size they'd like and let us know (we can even send them a ring sizer!) and their ring will be made to order with the perfect fit.

Thicket jewelry is meant to be worn and loved but it's always advisable to remove jewelry before exercising, swimming and using harsh chemicals such as cleaning solutions. If you use your hands for work or for other pursuits like gardening or cooking, it's also a good idea to remove rings and bracelets. (And if the piece includes a set diamond you will definitely want to take it off for any activity where it may experience any impacts!)
You can clean your jewelry at home with a soft jewelry cloth or with a gentle soap and a soft toothbrush. If your piece includes oxidized sterling silver avoid vigorous polishing to preserve the darkened finish.
If your piece is set with a diamond it is important to regularly inspect it to be sure the diamond is secure and that there is no movement of the stone in the setting.
