RAW 52/52 - My big Finale!

For my last two ring postings I made a series of rings based on a Christmas theme. Each ring began with a little dish of PMC stamped with a snowflake motif and I treated each one differently. I wanted to show how versatile metal clay is and that it's just like any other medium, part of the available things people can use to make truly custom work.


top row:

#1. a watch crystal over red glass glitter inside a soldered brass bezel, soldered sterling shank.

#2. a laced garland of tiny garnets, PMC shank soldered on in the same stamped pattern.

#3. a pool of resin floating faceted aquamarine briolettes round side up and golden charlottes, PMC shank soldered on in the same star pattern.


bottom row:

#1. laced tiny pearls and aquamarines, PMC shank soldered on in the same stamped pattern.

#2. This ring was #51 - Stamped PMC leaves, 2 flower shaped sterling bits, sterling shank, all soldered together, rose cut peridot.

#3. soldered detail, soldered sterling shank.


Hand formed! Tumbled! Soldered! Oxidized! Assembled! Polished! Celebrated! Good Times!


MERRY METAL CHRISTMAS! . . . that's a wrap!
