Ring-A-Day: Samsonite Ring

Alexandrite was named after Alexander II of Russia, Labradorite is named after the place Labrador Retrievers come from, and Samsonite is named after the fine fur of Ranjit’s Pomeranian companion from which this ring is made.

Ranjit encouraged me to work Samson’s fur into a ring with a felting technique. I stabbed myself bloody at least 5 times trying to get the fur to mesh. The result is a size 11.5 Pomeranian finger warmer.
