Core Sample Ring


Craft Ontario is excited to partner with George Brown to showcase the work of the Jewellery Arts graduating students from the class of 2021. On display in the Craft Ontario Shop September 11th until October 6th, GBC JEWELS is a collection of thesis work from the Jewellery Arts program at George Brown College. 

Jess Bischoff's collection is inspired by Martian astrogeology and specific research-gathering processes associated with NASA’s Mars Exploration Program: drilling, core-sampling, and sample caching. Her work focuses on the significance of these processes, and their importance in examining the mysterious rock and regolith of Mars.

A statement ring inspired by the Martian core samples that will be collected by the Perseverance rover and cached for further research.
