Ring... and it's not the telephone.

This BEAUTIFUL ring was designed by the fabulous Jai Underhill. I met Jai while I was student teaching at the Neighborhood School in Jamaica Plain MA. Now, I knew Jai was an artist because she is the art teacher at the Neighborhood school. However, I didn't know she designed jewelry until my student teaching position had come to an end. The staff and students at Neighborhood School threw a going away party for me. At the party Jai presented me with this gorgeous pearl bracelet. 

Once I discovered Jai's not so hidden, hidden talent, I asked her to help me. I had two rings I received as a teenager. One from my mother. The other from my godmother. I wanted  to be able to wear the rings in a way that represented my current sense of style. Enter Jai. 
 Jai took these two rings and turned them into this: 
Jai's attention to detail is amazing. From the angles of the diamonds. To the twists and turns of the gold. I love how the precious metal cascades down the sides and then coils  around the finger. My picture does this ring no justice!

It's a one of a kind piece and I'm so proud to be the owner! 

That's my 2 cents!

Thanks Jai! 



  1. Amazing! Now I am going to look through my jewelry to see what can be altered!

  2. That is actually amazing. I didn't even know you could do that to jewellery!
