Still busy finishing stuff for the weekend. These came back from the platers today, four silver rings gold plated.
I came straight home and set the stones. And I put my grubby little fingers inside them for scale – at class once I made john a ring and people wondered what it was because it was so big – he has fingers like bunches of bananas.
From left to right, sugilite, amethyst, a carnelian intaglio (which I’m a bit miffed about, to be honest, since decent intaglios are hard to find and expensive to buy, but this ring is roughly based one one belonging to richard the lionheart and needed an intaglio. I bought that for me, dammit) and a bloodstone intaglio (I’m not so miffed about that one, as it’s not a brilliant stone).
They actaully don’t look too awful considering that I made all four in one afternoon. He wanted more king bling, cos obviously the crown
and orb and sceptre I made him
That I made him years ago simply aren’t enough
