Ring Practice

A couple folks have been inquiring as to whether I make rings or not. The answer is: YES I do. I haven't made any wire ones for a long time; the reason is because when I first learned how, I didn't really like how they looked. Well, that changed a little bit since I figured out how to do coils with them and embellish them a little better. I whipped these little beauties up last night and practiced with some copper wire. I had to practice my technique once again, so much so that I turned to Eni Oken for some help. I like her tutorials; they're easy to follow, illustrated nicely, and most importantly, allow for some use of your own imagination.

I'm pleased with the way the unakite one turned out (the one on top), because I liked adding those beads as an accent. Plus, since the focal bead is 8mm, it really "pops" against the copper ring.

I'll be listing these later today, along with some more to match with my Pinkleberry Drops, Pink Chocolate, Beneath the Moon (all versions), plus any others for which I can find some coordinating stuff.

Stay tuned...
