My First Ring

Yay happy days, today I finished my first ever ring. I've been meaning to have a go for a while but could never quite think of what I wanted to put on as the feature. I love what other people do but try really hard not to do the same thing.

The trouble these days is that you think you've come up with an original idea only to find someone else is already doing it. I've had to stop looking at other jewellery designers work because I kept seeing things I was planning on making.

Anyway, here are a couple of pictures of the finished article, I topped it with a portion of cuttlefish casting. I did the casting ages ago and couldn't decide what to do with the result. This seemed perfect.

The cast feature isn't 100% symmetrical but I don't think it matter this time. Hope you like it.

I don't think the cuttlebone casting needs to be symmetrical and I think you did a fabulous job. I rarely see people using cuttlebone tastefully and successfully. You've done it.
