Ring A Week Number 7

I'm not sure why, but design ideas often come to me in the shower. My seventh ring in the Ring A Week challenge was one of those ideas. I was thinking about this small peridot cabochon that I've had for awhile and wondering how I might use it in a ring when this image of the peridot encircled with leaves popped into my head. I began drawing and etching the leaf design right away and the finished piece is exactly as I envisioned (which is not always the case, so I was very pleased). Below are some photos of the ring in progress.

This is my favorite ring (so far) that I've made for the challenge and it reminds me that spring is just around the corner.


  1. Lisa! that is amazing!!!! great job!

  2. I love this ring, Lisa! Peridot is my favorite.

  3. This is my favorite ring so far, Lisa. It's strong and organic at the same time. just stunning.


  4. That is beautiful ... very inspiring!

  5. I bought one of your leaf necklaces a short while ago ( - still in transit, most likely in customs!). I was wondering if versions of this ring and the other leaf rings will be available on your Etsy store?

    I adore anything leafy and your designs are the best rendering of leaves in jewellery seen. Coupled with the leaf green of the peridot, this is spot-on perfect.

  6. Thank you all for the kind words!

    Jo, I do intend to eventually make more leaf rings to sell in my Etsy shop in coming months. I'm so glad you like them. :)
