Tyrant ring

About this project

The project explored how events are subjectively recorded and remembered and how this creates myths that may or may not be true. The piece represents the myth of Richard III and his reputation in history as a tyrant, referencing armour and the red and white roses of York and Lancashire. In representing these ideas in a luxury jewellery object the wearer is left to decide the story of the ring.
