Dorothée’s iconic Onefooter Ring is making waves across North America.
A one foot length of sterling silver or 18k gold wire is first forged in various directions, much like life pushes and pulls us. The wire is then wound repeatedly into a continuous loop, wrapping around the finger many times without beginning or end. This design started as a drawing in brush and ink; the undulating line of the brushwork can still be detected in the translation into metal. Because each one is wrought by hand, the flow of wire finds its own way each time I create a new ring. Thus, every Onefooter ring is unique and different; no two are the same.
Dear Dorothée, I discovered your Twofooter Rings at the Vancouver Art Gallery this weekend and it was as if I had encountered the ring I’d always dreamed for myself and would make if I were a goldsmith. Thank you for your beautiful creations! [Later when the ring arrived] Thank you for sending the beautiful two footer over to the Vancouver Art Gallery with my name on it. It reached me, it fits perfectly, and I love it.
Hello Dorothée! Years after our meeting, I have finally purchased one of your rings yesterday. I was in a local shop, the Two Macs in Margaree, and gasped. “Dorothée’s rings!” One fit me perfectly (a one and a half footer in silver) and could not leave it behind. Your work still stirs something profound in me – I can’t say exactly why that is… it evokes movement, fluidity, flexibility, and echoes the twists and turns of life… maybe that’s it. Thank you for the beauty you bring through your work.
Hi Dorothee, thank you very much for my beautiful ring. I love it! It is exactly what I have been looking for!
Dorothee, I was nervous using my mother’s ring for sentimental reasons, but I am so glad I did! I love the ring and I can now wear it instead of it sitting in a jewellery box. Thank you and Merry Christmas.
Dorothee, just got my ring and I LOVE it. I’ll be sure to praise your work whenever someone admires it. I hope to be a repeat customer!
Hi Dorothee –
Thank you so much for making me a new ring. It fits and I love it!
The ring arrived promptly, just before we left town for a few days with friends.
The ladies both noticed my new ring – and commented on how beautiful it was and how perfectly it suited me.
Can’t thank you enough….
Thank you very much for my ring!
It's gorgeous, perfect and I love it!
