Ethnic Ring - The Eyes are Watching

Sunday, December 20, 2009

Today I am reminded of Iza when I made this Ethnic Ring. If you don't know her, check out her awesome jewelry designs here. She has an etsy shop selling tutorials here.
Anyway, back to the ring, I took longer time than usual to complete this ring. Actually I redo 3 times to get the right size. The first one was too small, on second try the wires didn't want to cooperate so I threw the whole thing into the dustbin...a bit frustrated. Finally on third try, just the size I wanted.

This is a gorgeous ring Mei...as you know I love amethyst, which it looks as though that is what you used for both sides of the the center beads in this ring...

I visited Iza's sites and she is amazingly talented!!!

Cheers

Yeah Heather, they are amethyst. Always forgot to mention that.
Thanks Tammy, thanks Lori and all the best in your new journey.

I have been following and enjoying your work for quite a while. When I saw this ring I had to reach out you. Love it! It also pointed out to me how inspiration can occur in more than one place at a time. I just recently completed a ring based on the "Eye of Horace." I hope you'll check it out on my blog.

Hi Gloria, I just have a glimpse of your blog and I am heading back right after this. Thanks for commenting. I always love to hear what others have to say about things I post here. And this time around, inspiration do occur in more than one place at a time :)
