The Cat-Eye Catastrophe

Marie Antoinette gave a large cat-eye stone ring to her friend the Count De Fersen who never stopped wearing it after her execution. Unfortunately he too was killed on the steps of Stockholm Cathedral when one of the assailants cut off his finger and threw it with the ring into the sea. From that moment onwards the assailant was haunted by the ring through constant aberrations of the finger returning to threaten him.

The agate stones form some unique shapes to add interest to the design. each stone is spaced by a similar stone cut into the shape of a bead.
