An ivory tusk of a Congolese baby elephant, half of a set from a Belgian family heirloom, is burnt at a pet crematorium.
From the ashes of the ivory an artificial diamond is made, turning the carbon into a form of fossil. The diamond is then set as an ouroboros into a gold replica of my wedding ring.
