Ring-A-Day: Sparkle and Texture
All right, now take the last three rings, add a gem stone, some millgrain to go with the carved texture, and make it sharp. I turned the culet up on this gem since it seems to be in fashion lately to wear spiky rocks. Culets are supposed to be ground flat and parallel with the table, but this one is quite sharp.
Ring-A-Day: Wavy Gold Band
Carved a similar style to yesterday, and the day before but in a mens band. Took the technique a little farther and a little smoother. I’m really liking this texture.
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.
Ring-A-Day: Cruel Ring in Sterling Silver
This ring is the opposite of smooth and round. I named it after Steve Martin’s comedy album, Cruel Shoes. A quick Google images search reveals that the shoe idea is still going strong. Maybe Cruel Rings will catch on too.
