Amethyst ring

Here is an amethyst bezel ring that I finished today. It's very slender and petite, the amethyst measuring at 6mm. I used 16g sterling silver wire for the band. I think it turned out pretty well!



I'm not quite ready to sell this ring yet, though once I do, it will be a custom order since the size will need to be specified for each customer. The sizing is mainly the reason I am not offering this yet. It took me several tries to get the correct size for my finger, even though I did all the things I was supposed to do in order to get accurate measurements. So, I need to practice some more.

But I am looking forward to making more of this!
