public_access_description
Sensuality and surrealism combine in this enamelled silver ring. The lips continue the theme initiated by Azagury-Partridge's earlier 'eye' rings. She has written 'if the eyes are the windows to the soul, by contrast the lips express the earthy, sensual side of life'. The choice of vivid red enamel, she comments, gives 'a slick, pop, erotic, more modern look' than an alternative pavé-set version of the ring.
