in stitches!

Yay! I finished my ring! :-D It's all silver. I loved the idea of a patched up ring -something worn and ragged in a precious material like silver. Must be the influence of the Wabi-Sabi book I've been reading a couple of months ago...

So it took me two full days of sawing, texturing with linen cloth, drilling, sewing, soldering and forming the metal...didn't add stones yet, but I might with a next project.

And this ring -at least the stitches- is your next clue for The Project! :-p Don't get your expectations too high, it's just something I've been planning on doing for quite some time but I fear it won't be until the summer vacation, after library school has finished.
