Ring, “Corona Ring/ Red Dots”, silver, brass, iron. During those first confusing weeks of the virus outbreak, Swedish jewellery artist Tobias Andersson created a series of five rings titled “Red Dots”. The imagery that directly came to his mind was that of skulls and the Coronavirus particle. Andersson is no stranger to creating jewellery with skulls, but this time they are more damaged than ever before – all banged up, bloody, bruised and covered with band aids. He also created the “Corona Ring” in the form of a metal skull with holes drilled through it, and nails aggressively piercing it. The nails are painted with the alarming red dots that we have all come to recognize as belonging to the little, yet lethal monster virus.
Tobias Andersson (b. 1968) lives and works in Stockholm. He studied at HDK-Valand Academy of Art and Design in Gothenburg. Andersson is represented at Rian Design Museum in Falkenberg and his rings are worn by a diverse clientele.
PRICE: 6 295 SEK or 7 295 SEK each. The series ”Red Dots” includes five different rings.
