I was busy today...
New Etsy Listing for Retro Red Round Ring
I love this ring. This is what came out of me today. (i mentioned before i have been craving color) Here she is. I wanted simple lines and flow to go with the pretty, shiny deep red enameled dome cabochon a fellow artisan made.
She is a size 8.25 A half round (very matte) sterling silver ring shank is connected to a bezel made of copper and fine silver. I wanted to have a contrast in metals on the underside of this pretty ring.
I love that the cabochon is round and domed, the dome is not perfectly centered, that would just be so predictable, this ring has character.
I chose not to oxidize because the red enamel is such an eye magnet, also there's a bit of black in the red.
Isn't it lovely to take such a delicate piece of enamel and encase it in strong metal?
Hope you like her too...
