Spring has sprung!

A gorgeous day today- very fitting that I finish my prototype ring today.

It's a viola flower from a pot growing happily on my windowsill that I bought from a seller on Cambridge's sunday market.
It's been dried, sealed and then encased in resin. I'll wear it on saturday and see how I get on with it. The ring base I've contructed as a spiral in sterling silver to make it re-sizable. Most of my rings are like this, as I often find that I have to make several sizes otherwise...and all of them are destined to be wrong when the customer that falls in love with the ring tries them on!
If this style turns out to be wearable and the colours don't fade, then you'll see this design gracing my stall in the near future. In the meantime, feel free to come along to All Saints or the sunday market to have a closer look at this one!
