River Rock Ring with Faceted Citrine- 7
Yep, it's a river rock that I drilled a hole through. I made the shank out of some pattern sterling silver that I have. Then I soldered some tubing to the top and set a 2mm Citrine in it. I the put the river rock on with epoxy.
Pretty Cool huh?
Granite River Rock Ring - 7
Here's another one. I like to make these a lot. My husband says they are ugly, but I think they are swell. The pattern shank is sterling silver. You can see the pattern from the antiquing effect I added to the metal. Also set in the center of the stone is a .2mm Almandine Garnet
Iron Included Agate Cabochon set on Cigar Band Ring - 9.5
This is the last Cigar Band ring I have right now. This one has a nice 15x20mm Agate cabochon on it. It is set in a fine silver bezel setting and I have scalloped the edges of the setting to add some interest. Also I like to use my hammers so I put a hammered texture on the Sterling Silver band..
Cigar Band Ring with 15x20mm Opal Contera - 9.5
This is another great stone. I am facinated by Opals. The variety in which they come is astounding. Opal Conteras are cool because you see the matrix stone they grow in with the rich firery colors that are produced. Also I have hammered a texture on the sterling silver cuz I like to.
I call these rings Cigar Bands because the hand piercing of the band reminds me of that and I recall my Dad - he smoked Cigars. He would let me go to the drug store with him when I was a kid and get a Matchbox Car when he got his cigars. What.... I liked cars!
Big 12x25mm Robins Egg Blue Turquoise Ring - Size 9.5
Here is another middle finger ring I made. It has a fabulous color to it. The stone is set in fine silver bezel wire that I have scalloped the edges of. It is set on a piece of 20 gauge sterling silver half moon shape. The shank is some more of that great pattern sterling silver shank. Oh so shinny!
Crazy Lace Agate in a Cigar Band Ring - 5
Hand pierced sterling silver band with 12x14mm Crazy Lace Agate set in fine silver bezel setting. I don't know if you have noticed but I always or most always scallop the edges of my bezel settings. I think it adds an interesting facet to the piece. And after all who am I here to please...... Me!
Oh, one last thing, I like to use my hammers so I hammered a nice texture on the sterling silver band.
