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.
