LOVE ring


I've had the design for this ring in my head ever since I finished the matching earrings over the summer, but I wasn't sure it would work out. Finally I got the idea of inverting the dome and stamping the letters on the "dip" part of the dome, if you will, so it wears better. And I think it worked.

I almost had fifty heart attacks while making this ring because it was very stubborn and kept fighting me, but I finally wrestled it into submission and showed it who is boss. This required a very delicate, careful hand. My torch definitely got a workout with this piece.

I'm thinking I want to make one for me as well - it looks really cool on the finger!

The LOVE ring is now available in size 6 in my Etsy shop.
