I made this ring as my final project in my jewelry class last semester. It reminds me of a war torn water lily. I really like how it came out. Its so light, beautiful and fragile, yet tough and large. My only fault was in making the edges so jagged, I achieved the effect I wanted, but forgot that it might be easy to snag fabric on it. Thus this ring is not for wearing to work.
I absolutely love working with metals. Its amazing how you can fabricate such a beautiful object from something in the Earth. I wish being a jewelry major didn't mean staying in school for another year, otherwise, I most definitely would have switch majors.
I'm thinking about making an epic chain necklace next. I have a whole spool of gold chain and it snowed again.
