Ring a Week 12/52

I found a new simple ring design that I love. I think I might make a whole handful of these. Here's the first, Nestling.

It was rather serendipitous design. I cut an oval and then a frame for it that had a hole too small. As both were drying, I cut another image into the proper size oval. Eventually I stacked them all up with the ring embedded between. Easy as it possibly could be.

And I finished ahead of my deadline this week!!! See the rest of the challenge offerings at the Ring a Week Flickr site.

  1. Came here first before I asked a question But you didn't answer it for me before I asked. So... Is the shank metal clay or one of those fine silver ring forms? This is just lovely. And you should totally do a line of them.

  2. Lora, it's one of the preformed fine silver rings. So easy to insert -- expensive though.
