Ring-A-Day: Organic Carved Silver Band
Started with a thicker band today and carved away more than yesterday’s Cruel Ring. I also added a ridge to soften the ring a bit. The inside of the band was reduced and rounded by carving into the cylindrical geometry as well. Over all, a more organic design.
