Ring A Week Number 10

I began this ring two years ago. It originally had an etched design on the front but the etching didn't turn out so well. It sat in my work-in-progress drawer and every now and then I'd think about how I might be able to save it. I decided to have another go at it for Ring A Week number 10. I filed off the etched face and I flush set a 3mm faceted peridot. I gave the ring a rustic, lightly hammered texture and oxidized finish.

I wish I had a before photo. I thought I did, but I can't find it. I think I have improved the ring, and I'm glad that after two years it's finally finished.

  1. I love stopping by to see what is next. It's beautiful. I have a lovely peridot necklace from my husband, so I have a special affinity for them.


  2. Thanks so much for stopping by, Sherry, and thanks for your kind words. Peridot is a favorite of mine too. :)
