  • Michael the Archangel, is the patron Saint of many people, groups,cities and countries but in my engraving experience he has been most associated with the Police, Paramedics and the Military. I have engraved many pieces with a similar image often in a surface style but with this one, a coin like, low relief style was the most appropriate. An engraver has to choose the method that best serves the piece. .
The representations of Archangel Michael are innumerable and the importance of this image spans across many religions. I couldn’t possibly do justice to an explanation here other than detailing of my process.
.
Some images work best in a surface style of engraving and some with a mix of surface style along with relief but with this one I chose a complete coin treatment for the top. My primary concern is always the durability of the top image. Being a gold ring, actions such as putting your hand in your pocket, opening doors and your daily wear and tear play havoc with that top image. Yes, the top surface is hardened by hammer as I always explain but it is still gold. An image with this much  detail would require the smallest (shallow) cuts to capture the image correctly. Surface engraving can be impressive with all of those tiny cuts, creating the illusion of depth and subtlety of light play but in order to do that, the cuts are very shallow. This is just the opposite of what is required for a ring that is expected to be durable. A coin like engraving gives it depth and increases the longevity of the ring

🙌 I am a writer and everything I write is both a confession and a struggle to understand things about myself and this world in which I live. This is what everyone's work should be... Whether you dance or paint or sing it is a confession, a baring of your soul, your faults, those things you simply cannot or will not understand or accept. You stumble forward, confused and you share. If you're lucky you learn something. Arthur Miller🙌
