River Rock Ring with Faceted Citrine- 7 Item AQF
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 Item AOB
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 Item A006
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..
Crazy Lace Agate in a Cigar Band Ring - 5 Item 001
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.
