Making Rings at Silverworks Studio

Larimar, my new favorite stone. 
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.
