anatomy of a ring

anatomy of a ring

Being a maker of things, I feel like while I’m pretty good at some things, really good at others, I’m just mediocre at many… And sometimes when I’m trying to make things I see how my diverse interests make me a jack of all trades and a master of none. I melted several bezels while attempting to make this ring, burned my fingers, and used more expletives than I know I should…. but the 3rd or 4th time is the charm, and I really like the way it turned out. The polka dot bit in the middle is an enameled piece of copper I made in a class a few months ago, and the rest is silver. Making this makes me want to go back and take more metal smithing classes at Pratt!
