Many of the ring dishes I do start out as aluminum discs that I stamp and then shape, but this one was hand cast in pewter by an artisan out in Idaho. It has a beautiful, heavy weight to it with a heart at the top.
I hand-stamped each letter into the pewter and darkened them with black patina. The dish is 2" wide, 1.9" tall and just perfect for holding a ring on a nightstand or on the windowsill by a sink.
