Rings with Bling.
As soon as I was comfortable hammering pure sterling rings, I wanted to add more to some of my designs. I have SO many beads that I'm in love with, and I know that they'll make fabulous rings, but I needed to work out a few techniques for how exactly to attach them to a sterling base.
I'm really pleased with what I've come up with so far, and glancing around Etsy, I haven't seen any others like them. :)

Amethyst and Peridot.
I have ordered MANY more fabulous stones which I hope will arrive soon so that I can make more of these rings. I'm really excited about the ideas that I have bubbling around in my head. :D
I have always loved creating jewelry in one form or another, but it wasn't until recently that I stumbled upon the idea of creating items to sell. I started buying supplies and set up shop on Etsy.com and it's been a pretty interesting ride so far.
