More Rings

I've been working on more rings. Still learning the technique. I'm almost ready to make some to sell. They seem to hold up really well and I think they are beautiful!

The blue ring's main stone is Dumortierite like the stones in the bracelet that I featured earlier. The ring is also Swarovski pearls and crystals. And of course Sterling Silver.

The aqua ring is all Swarovski crystals and Sterling Silver. Boy, does it sparkle. And I really like the composition.

Labradorite is the stone in the next ring. Do you see the flash of color, the iridescensce? It's one of my favorite stones. The stone seems to glow. Love it!

Smokey Quartz is the main stone in the last ring. I added a touch of Tigers Eye and Swarovski Pearls and Crystals.

I am so enjoying these rings. They are difficult to photograph. But I found those lovely roses hold them up pretty well!

So, which ring do you like best?

I love them all but I have to say the third one speaks to me the most -- I tend to always go for the simpler designs. Such beautiful work all around!

Hello.....i'd go easy on the mustard, i add a bit at a time and taste it to make sure its just right.
I also make apple sauce to serve with it, best with pork, as mustard and apple go best with it!

Hi Janine,
Great web site. I really like your ring designs. I have to say that the first one pictured and the last one are my favorites. I like them because the designs are very unique. I especially like how you twisted the silver metal on the last one. It shows off the stone nicely and I like the pearl detail. Very feminine and unique. I always tend to like items that are unique in design. You did an great job on all of these rings. God has certainly given you a wonderful talent. You are a gifted artist!
