New Pliers, Cutters, "Tea Ring" & Turquoise Bracelets

Saturday, May 30, 2009

I am back, kind of! Was away for a very short period, then there was the on and off internet connection, then busy with work and started a new blog which have been put off for a while - http://OrchidBliss.blogspot.com. So for those of you who are Orchids enthusiast, check out our (me and hubby) blog on orchids - wild / species orchids.

Here are my new purchase - can't resist.
Flat nose pliers and a straight full flash side cutter.

Very Smooth!
Got myself a silver ring with my name attached to the top too. Known as "Tea Ring" as narrated by the maker. Some people call it Snake Ring. However mine don't look like snake as my name (MEI) is attached to the top. So what is the story with "Tea Ring"?
Simply, get your friends to reassemble this ring while you are having tea. If they can't do it, they pay for your drinks. That's it. I haven't tried it out yet. Soon....when I need some free drinks...:D

Anyone of you own or ever come across this type of ring? I first heard of this when I was at my parents place last 2 weeks and just got to make one. The man who makes them happened to live close by so I didn't waste my time. Well, actually I have another intention, to find out if I can make one with wire...hehe...

The four rings are linked.

Almost successfully reassembled!


And here are two turquoise bracelets I managed to whip up for a friend and her daughter.
