In my last blog I mentioned that I'd had a request for aluminium rings and that I'd tell you more about what I'd been working on this week. The customer in question treated herself to two rings so here's a glimpse of my aluminium and silver rings.
|Andromeda Wraparound Ring|
All of these rings are made entirely from aluminium which has been dyed and forged into shape to produce a unique piece of jewellery.
|Starry Nights Ring|
I also wanted to work on a ring which combined sterling silver and aluminium.
I hand pierced two flower shapes, filed and polished the edges and then made the sterling silver ring band to which I soldered a small silver wire. I domed the flower shapes, drilled the centres and stacked them onto the silver wire and cold connected them with the wire acting a rivet. Hope you like the outcome!

I've found Pinterest which is great fun and has lost me many hours of my life this week!!! It's so addictive looking for and adding the items that I personally find beautiful, inspirational, funny, cute and plain weird to my boards (like the dog that looks exactly like a loaf of bread!!). If you are also on Pinterest, come and look for me!
In other news my husband is just in the process of redesigning and relaunching his website so if you'd like to see his paintings then pay him a visit on http://www.davidmuddyman.co.uk
See you all next week!
