After my rounding success with my mom's ring, I decided to go back to a ring I started last year, with which I fought and fought the bezel. I liked how the gallery wire set off the cabochon on the waterlily ring, and thought it would suit the pottery shard I was setting in this ring, too. I cut and soldered the wire for the bezel, and soldered it onto the ring. This time, it went so smoothly I could hardly believe it!
I bought this and several other sea pottery shards from an Etsy seller in Fife, Scotland, who rescues them from the strand, and sends them off to new homes. This pink flowered one was one of my favorites. I love that I am able to incorporate little bits of history into my pieces. This lovely little piece reminded me of the Robert Burns poem, The Posie.
This ring was plucked up quickly by a gentleman for 'his ain dear May', but I have more in the works. You will be seeing them here soon!
I have always loved making things with my hands. It has always amazed me that I am able to take an image in my mind and make it come into form. Like magic!
I will never have enough time to create all the wonderful things waiting to come to life from my imagination, but you can see a few of the lucky ones that actually get made here.
I hope they bring a bit of joy to your day!
Thanks for looking!
