Rings and Things…

This past week has been spent in my metals studio creating these stacking rings and bangles. I’m finally making use of the many gemstones I’ve collected over the years as well as new additions of fossil walrus teeth slices (my husband commented that it’s good to have something older in the house than he!) and various rose cut gemstones. Set in hammer-textured sterling silver round, strip and twisted wire are stones of carnelian, milky aqua marine, chrysoprase, lemon chrysoprase, tourmaline, citrine, and red and pink coral. I’m enjoying making these and plan to make many more bangles. I especially like the “Tangle Bangle” featured at the center in the photo . It is composed of three intertwined 16 gauge sterling silver wire bangles and adorned with one dangling orange carnelian stone. I’ve always felt that one can’t have too many earrings and I’m starting to feel the same about rings and bangles!
