more work in progress...
I seem to have a lot of work in progress projects on the go lately, there will be a time (hopefully soon) when they will be finished and ready to list in my shop.
The one I've had the most fun with lately is making a stacking ring, I've wanted one myself for a while but never got round to buying one from Etsy. Now I'm soldering I thought 'Hey I can make myself one!'
I wanted a substantial ring but something very simple and good to wear everyday. I have chosen slightly thicker wire than a normal stacking ring, this is a nice in between a thin stacking ring and a thicker stand alone ring. You can wear it either way.
This one isn't quite there with the brushed finish yet so I have more wire on the way to make more! I like the brushed finish, I use it a lot in my silver work and it makes the silver sparkle in a different way to a mirror finish.
Keep your eyes peeled for rings in my shop very soon - hopefully in gold fill and silver!
