The Moonstone Prong Ring my Father Made Me

Wednesday, June 15, 2011

My father is a welder so he works with metal a lot.
He also makes his own jewelry but almost exclusively ring.
Not sure why I didn't catch the jewelry making bug from him back then but he made quite a number of them.
Maybe because he works with stainless steel block and not wire.
As far as I remember, he never sold any of his handmade rings.
He does take his own sweet time in making them though - few months to finish a piece! including my ring here which I collected when we went for our vacation two weeks ago.

This ring (Moonstone) is a special request from me.
He said it's not that well done but I am very happy with it because with this ring I feel a different kind of connection with him...we actually share the same interest..and I am sure I inherited this talent/skill from him...:)



No soldering. The prongs or claws are cut from the same piece that form the ring.
Now, it stays on my finger! <3

Oh that is beautiful, Mei! My father and I made a drop spindle three years back, and that's always been a very special connection I have to him whenever I use it. He made it with me even though he had no idea what it was and had to listen to me blablabla about the plans. ;)
