Felt great to be in the studio again for a full day!
My sister and some friends have been here all week and we have had a great time playing in the studio. I am looking forward to working all next week in the studio as well! I have been having a few problems that have kept me out of the studio lately.... you can read about that below the photos.
These rings were made with 2mm thickness silver strip. I like the heaviness to the ring. I have had several requests from my customers for rings to match their bracelets and pendants. So here are the first cup rings so far.
The plain band has a message stamped inside of it that reads "i love whit"! Something about having that on the inside makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.... silly but true.
I was extremely happy with the patina on all of the rings... but especially the 3 cup one.
Let me know what you think of the rings and offer up any ideas you may have for other rings!
Have a great weekend!
I had been having a lot of problems with my left hand lately and finally went to my hand specialist. He gave me a second shot of cortisone in my thumb. At the moment I am pain free and should be for a few more months. Monday I am getting fitted for a custom hand brace that will help me when I need some extra support. I am scheduled to have carpal tunnel and joint replacement surgery (arthroplasty) in October. In the latter procedure the surgeon removes the affected joint and replaces it with a graft from one of my tendons. I had the same procedure done to my right hand and now it is good as new... soon the left will be the same. Not looking forward to the months of recovery but know that in the long run it will totally be worth it.
