This paper contains four major sections. The first section focuses on the historical development of the ring and how the finger ring in every era has reflected the function and aesthetics of its time. The second part delves into the different materials I have chosen to use, and why I selected them. The third section examines what influences have affected my work, and includes a detailed explanation of the eleven rings shown in my thesis project. The conclusion summarizes how my art reflects my aesthetic.
