Leave a comment for a free micro wave stacker ring!!!!


I'm very excited about my new micro stacking wave rings! I tried something similar to these last year and made them into earrings for Bead and Button. They were much larger than these and had pins through them. I don't think it would be possible to put pins in something this small!  (but who know..... I am always up for a challenge). 

So today I challenged myself to work very, very, very small with some new tools that I had recently acquired. This is the result of my playing around. They are about 1 - 2 mm wide!!!! ( teeny tiny)  You can easily stack 6 or more on a finger and they look awesome! 

Can you tell I am excited about these!!!!!

I am going to try adding some 24 kt gold wire inside them and see how they turn out........

stay tuned....

side note: in this photo I am wearing 8 and they are on my pinky.... that may give you more of an idea as to how small they are!!!!

Very pretty!!

Claudia M said...

IF I win one I still need to purchase 5. I love that you continue to challenge yourself with new ideas. It encourages me to see that there is always more to be visualized then taken to conception. While I'm still on lampworking I see a silver project in my future. :-)

AutEv said...

Your silversmithing skills keep me in awe and your patination on the wave series is phenomenal. Wow! Impressive!

Dorry said...

Juliette Sterner said...

whoa! took me a second and third look to realize these are rings! hmm, I'd like to see one with a little ball of silver or gold or some other metal trapped in the channel and rollable all around!

Trish Klein said...

These are beautiful, Andrea. I was thinking that I needed some stacker rings and wave rings and stacks rings combined are just perfect!
