In honor of a respected and revered career in the Coast Guard, I was commissioned to create this amazing coxswain ring. This ring is solid white gold and represents a mastery in boat handling and significant rank. The idea was to make the ring reminicent of a class ring in style, but more slim, sleek and wearable. I was so pleased with how this project turned out. It somehow feels old-school and current. I love the natural element with the waves and the nautical oars tied together with clean, modern lines. I must admit I worked on it for a LONG TIME, but managed to finish it just in time for Master Chief Jeffrey Smith's retirement. I can only hope that every time he glances at his hand, the ring properly recalls a career well worth noting.
