Leveraging the natural elegance of sage leaves, Melanie Neves handcrafted this rose bronze ring. Her choice of precious metal clay (bronze and steel) is a material that provides both beautiful texture and dimension.
The interior band is made of steel, while the leaf pattern, is created using real sage leaves. The leaf pattern is torched to add the soothing patina colouring.
Please keep in mind that tiny lines and flaws are characteristic of metal clay and add to its artisan feel.
Multiple images have been provided to demonstrate the possible colour variation with torch firing to add patina. Due to the handmade nature of each piece, and the colour unpredictability that comes with torch firing, your ring will vary from those shown in the images. It will be a truly unique piece for you to treasure.
Care instructions will be provided with shipment.
Available ring sizes range from 5 – 10. Please make a note of the size required on your order.
The ring will be shipped to you in a small box and bag, ready for you to give as a gift, or open as a gift to yourself.

Melanie Neves | Toronto
Born and raised in Toronto, Melanie’s parents always put a huge emphasis on education. She graduated from university with both a Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Education, but unfortunately teaching jobs were few and far between. She took a job unrelated to her field and quickly worked her way up to manager, only to realize that she felt very unfulfilled.
Having always been a creative person she thought it would be a good idea to get her creative juices flowing. Her excitement peaked upon discovering metal clay. She tried to balance working over 40 hours per week at a job she was beginning to hate with learning about metal clay, and trying to become inspired and create unique pieces of jewellery during her downtime. Exhausted from work and with the state of her happiness, her creativity was diminishing. She decided life is too short.
Taking a leap of faith she quit her day job, determined to turn her passion into a successful business. And just like that, Kĕme Jewellery was born. "Kĕme" is a slight twist on the ancient Egyptian word "khēmia", meaning transmutation of earth. She is still continuously amazed by the alchemy that takes place working with metal clay.
