Malachite silver ring, in my Etsy shop.
Making rings is one of my favorites, actually I started making jewelry because I wanted rings, rings and rings... And there were no way I could afford the rings I wanted.
So, I started making my own.
I tend to make all kind of rings, often I start with a hunt for stones:
... next step is the design, I have to plan what to make and how Its going to be worn:
...Then I have to make the ring or necklace from sheets of silver, wire and silver pebbles.
Its a great hobby, best I can imagine.
I have my work station in the livingroom, at the dining table.
That way I can be where my family is and still do what I love.
A litte quote from one of my favorite poets at the end of this story:
A certain minor light may stillSylvia Plath
Out of kitchen table or chair
As if a celestial burning took
Possession of the most obtuse objects now and then ...
