If you read my last post, you know that I've been through a bit of a rough patch. Thankfully, things have improved and I actually have a new piece to show off!
For now I'm just calling it the 'Rainbow Ring'. In person, the cab flashes all sorts of rainbow colors with a matte finish. Here's how I went about making it:
I bought a whole pack of these so I'm trying to think up clever and effective ways to bezel them, plus I'm all about rings lately.
First i made a strip of loops with my round nose pliers, and then I shaped the loops into a circle and secured them at the ends with a few wraps of 26 gauge wire.
Then I used my ring mandrel to form the shank of the ring, making sure to wrap it twice.
Then I wrapped the wire ends for a few rounds with the ends of the shank wires, forming a nice round ring without too much detail.
I am happy with how this turned out! I want to think up additional ways to bezel cabochons, but I have lots of ideas, too!
For now I leave you with Trinity, who thinks anything square or rectangular is made specifically for her to sit on.
Til Next time!
