See what I've been doing...

I’ve been practicing my wire wrapping skills. What do you think of my new rings?




This red one is made using three 6 mm cut beads. I used two garnets (dark red) and one ruby (light red) but any color combination would look good. I think this would work nicely as a Mother’s ring. This one is a size 6.










This brown one I used a piece of sea glass I found in the Bahamas and then topped if off with a bi-cone bead in a smoky topaz. I think this would be a fun way to use your souvenir glass. This one is a size 6 ½.






For this blue ring I used a large Sodalite bead. I think this would look nice with some jeans and a white shirt. I love the veins in this stone. This one is a size 8.










This green ring makes a nice statement piece. The foil lining of the bead gives a unique shimmer to the ring. This one is a size 7.









This pink one was made using an oval pearl with bead caps on each end. I also put a small rose-colored 4 mm cut bead on either side. It fits my pinky finger but I think it looks cute on my daughter. This one is a size 5 ½.





Which one do you like best?

I really like those! That green sodalite bead is beautiful! I wish I could make jewelry too.

Ohhh, I love the first two. I have some old stones that would look great as rings. I'm pulling them out right now.

Nice - I like the blue and white sodalite one. I used to have a gem polisher when I was a kid - polished a bunch of stones but never knew what to do with them.
