Name : SOUVANNA WEE
Type : Fashionable Ring
Here is a cute tiny ring that is 100% HANDMADE! It features a natural golden lace piece which lies suspended in stardust resin. This lacey material is a wild silk cocoon and its gold colour is natural. I’ve not added any colour dye to it. So why is this silk cocoon so different from the others?
The common silk cocoons have an off-white and their silk fibres are tightly spun together. These cocoons have no holes in them. They are commonly used as face scrubs and as jewelry. When used as jewelry, they are often dyed with bright colours, making them very pretty to look at. These silk cocoons are produced by domesticated silkworms called Bombyx Mori in a controlled environment.
On the other hand, the cocoon that you see in the resin is produced by a wild silkworm called Cricula Trifenestrata. In its adult state, it is a silk moth. The Cricula silk moth is native to places like India, the Philippines, Sri Lanka, Sulawesi and Java. It feeds on a variety of host plants out in the wild.
When I came across pictures of this golden cocoon, I was immediately drawn to its beauty and uniqueness. I wasn’t interested in the silk yarns. I wanted to make jewellery out of the cocoons. The thought of encasing the cocoon in a specially made silver casing is very appealing to me. So I explored ways to do that. These cocoons are feathery light and flat. The use of resin seems right as I would be able to suspend the cocoon in it so that its full beauty can be seen and appreciated. You will see the suspended cocoon piece with ease and when placed under the light, the silk fibres glisten. Alongside it, tiny speckles of star dust glitter as well.
The silk cocoon in resin is encased in sterling silver. The design of the silver piece is lovingly handmade to mimic the lace formation of the cocoon. The ‘laces’ were randomly positioned on the bezel cup. This is truly, a nature-inspired creation. It is unique!
