I loved the idea of Voodoo as a theme for a collection - I'm fascinated by the magic, mystery and darkness behind it and the exotic imagery it conjures up.
I used ancient Tribal Masks to depict 5 of the most powerful Voodoo Spirits - so as well as it being bold, resplendent jewellery with attitude, each Deity is said to bring the wearer unique powers and gifts.
Damballah is the archetypal wise Voodoo spirit and serpent divinity, associated with peace, benevolence, fertility and purity. The shank of the ring is made up of two interwoven snakes that curl round your finger.
Great for every day styling through day to night, very comfortable to wear and perfect accessory for the AW 12 Neo Gothic trend that's hitting fashion this autumn. The ring is handmade by me in my London Studio.
It comes with a small 'tarot-like' card explaining what your chosen Voodoo Spirit embodies (perfect for gift purchases)and is packaged in a Lee Renée branded box.
Ring measures approx. 3.1cm long.
Ring is made on a solid silver base and overlayed with 22ct gold
