Ghost in the Shell

A minimalist, futuristic form partially inspired by the amazing manga and movie of the same name, which explores ideas about networks, consciousness, and interaction of the mind (Ghost) with the body (Shell).

2016 Association of Professional Piercers "Creative Innovation" award winner!

The form for Ghost in the Shell is two layers with beautiful vivid blue natural turquoise from the Kingman mine (Arizona) set at the rear. This one of a kind pair is a prototype colored with a hypoallergenic nanoceramic plating process which deposits nanoparticles of ceramic in a very thin layer. We used this to achieve a rich, warm rose gold look that should last longer than traditional rose gold plate. As a prototype, this piece has some texture in the finish that does not detract from the aesthetic but is noticeable on close inspection, so we are not charging extra for the rose coating.

Dual wearing surfaces give this style a unique look and also prevent it from rotating back and forth in the lobe, so it will always face the same direction. This style is worn through the gap between the two layers by inserting the stone setting through the lobe. It will squeeze into 19mm+ lobes and looks great worn in larger sizes. The double wearing surface is very comfortable. Weight on these pieces is about 40 grams, varying slightly depending on the inlay.

Dimensions are approximately 65mm tall, 50mm wide, and 20mm from front to back. Cast in yellow lead-free silicon bronze with nanoceramic rose coating. From design through casting, stone carving and setting, Ghost in the Shell is 100% made in the USA.
