18ct White Gold
SUPER STUDDED RING
The Super Studded Ring is a fitting icon piece from the collection The Only Performance. An unashamedly oversized stud sits on the finger, whilst the hand-carved details mimic the traditional setting of a stone.
Hannah plays here with scale and tradition, flipping both on their head to create a unique piece of sculpture with strength, elegance and style.
A statement ring for those discerning collectors who choose jewellery with strength and power.

This piece grew from my desire to create a completely unabashed, no-holds-barred, unforgivingly large gold ring. A ring that would sit within the world of a dark and gritty London underground that I had conjured up as part of the collection’s narrative.
The collection ‘The Only Performance’ is my homage to London – and its hidden depths. This ring has a starring part in the performance, so to speak. I conjured up a world of bad behaviour, a world inhabited by fallen rock stars, gangsters and creatures of the night. A world that explored sex, power and the boundaries of masculinity.
The ring needed to capture a very London feel. I wanted a strong architectural, graphic sense, but without losing the undertones of the thrilling darkness I had imagined in my story. There had to be vitality to this ring, it needed volume as well as sharp lines.
Throughout the design development of the collection I was playing with over-sized shapes, jewellery that has a sense of unapologetic power. I was also interested in the use of gold, where perhaps traditionally there would have been stones.
The enormous ‘stud’ that makes up the top of this ring is ‘set’ with knife-edge claws – mimicking the setting of a classic stone, but giving the whole concept a dark, sculptural twist.
