Ring-a-Day Weekly Round Up #5
R-A-D #216, #217, #218 “Fall Preview. Stackable trio”
At the beginning of the week I decided to post six rings in one day, so that I ‘m not five rings behind anymore. I made two sets of stackable rings, one that is reminiscent of autumn and one that features little critters in sterling silver.
R-A-D #219, #220, #221 “Flying & Crawling, Stackable Rings “
The following day, I spotted an oxidized copper “tulip” in my scrap pile and it was immediately turned into a ring:
R-A-D #222 8/10/2010 “Black Tulip”
Contrasting elements was the theme that inspired the next ring, which was made using coarse sandpaper and a soft crochet flower:
R-A-D #223 8/11/2010 “Contradictions”
Thursday’s ring, besides the making of it, also involved a certain manipulation of the image, in order to convey a weathered, nostalgic feeling:
R-A-D #224 8/12/2010 “Sewing notions”
R-A-D #225 8/13/2010 “Stamped”
Back to setting pebbles and also trying a different type of setting this time:
R-A-D #226 8/14/2010 “Black Pebble”
I have no hesitation to melt, destroy or disassemble anything that doesn’t work anymore. This ring was made using one piece of an old bracelet, just before I decide what to do with the tourmaline chips:
R-A-D #227 8/15/2010 “Tourmaline chips”
