Valentine Ring

First of all, I do apologize for all the extra little test emails. For whatever reason my blog is misbehaving and has us all scratching our heads. It has decided to stop emailing updates. Actually, that isn’t true. I did finally get some of them…. about 24 hours later. There may be a few more test posts coming through as we continue to troubleshoot this issue, but hope to have it resolved soon. I was on the phone with my host last night for nearly an hour and we had to pass it on to the advanced troubleshooting team. Just be patient and be sure to check in for any updates until we get it all resolved.

I am getting way behind in my jewelry making. Tonight I have been working on a few different projects. One of which I am presenting to a shop where I teach locally, to see if they would like to offer this along with my heart pendant. It is another project that will take only an hour and be minimal in terms of cost. I have showed two finishes. One is a bright copper and the other is after it has had a little bath in the Liver of Sulfur. This would have been great to show as an example of LOS with small wires.

I tried to get a picture of this on my finger as it is really cool looking, but the picture didn’t turn out very well, so you will just have to imagine it on my short stubby little hands. Any comments, questions or suggestions on this would be greatly appreciated.

    I love it!!! I think it would be just as stunning in silver!!! You are very talented. When I try to design something I can see it in my mind but I can’t get my project to look that way! Keep up the GREAT work!!

    Jeanne, It is totally adjustable. It is SOOOOO Comfortable to wear. My first ring was actually a bit too big on me, but I was able to adjust it down to a size that fit and even it was comfortable.

    My Thoughts exactly Penny. This was just one of my prototypes and I fully intent on making one in silver, perhaps tonight. I have a very hard time with getting the design in my head to look like the finished product. It doesn’t really help me to sketch it out either because I can’t draw to save my life. My drawings are about as good as those made by my 3-year-old.

    Yes, I am working on getting some directions written up for this. I will let you know when they are done.

    Glad you like the ring Terri. I am working on the short stubby hands. Hopefully soon they will just be short.

    This ring is really beautiful…what a great design. Which form of LOS did you use? I really like these shade of brown – the patina is wonderful.

    Thanks Cindy,

    I used the gel form of LOS, but even the little pebbles would have worked. I really like the patina on this one too.

    Thank you Nancy, I haven’t. But that is a great idea. Perhaps I will try to get that done this week. Thanks again!
