I bought two stones to set as rings at my last bead show in December and it took me this long to do it but here is what I created! I made the big one first and loved it, the little one got sold even before I finished making it. Next year I hope to pick up a few more of these gems!
First, I created plain silver rings out of flat wide wire and hammered them to give it that earthy feel. Then I worked on the bezels, soldered them onto the rings and then held my breath and hoped for a snug fit!
I also made my favorite little stacking silver rings.
