If you’re unfamiliar with a Claddagh ring, it’s a traditional Irish ring which represents love, loyalty, and friendship. Blogger explodedsoda thought it would be great to have a Zelda-themed Claddagh ring, but since she couldn’t find one anywhere on the internet, she did the next best thing – try to mold a virtual model using 3D modeling software.
She didn’t have the right skills in the program herself, so instead she contacted a friend in the design business and described the idea to him, and over the course of a few months they developed a plastic prototype. The final ring was crafted from polished sterling silver and is currently one of a kind – however, the designer did express perhaps making the ring available to the public at a later time.
The end result (shown above) is a beautiful piece of jewelry! If you’re interested in seeing a bunch of step-by-step pictures, you can visit explodedsoda’s blog.
Update: The creator of the ring has gotten back to another blogger and stated that he is working on making them public. He’ll be working on them over the next few weeks so stayed tuned and we’ll let you know when they’re up.
