Hey y'all! I just wanted to post some pictures of my new Amethyst Weave ring that I had recently made. It's for my friend John's wife, for her birthday. Nice birthday present eh?
However I ran into a problem, it was not big enough. Hmmm, I measured everything to her size, I'm just wondering why it's not dead on. I think I may have pulled the weaving too tight. That's the only thing that I can think of, that would alter the sizing, even though I had measured everything. I was able to save this setting for another stone, and now I am making another setting for her.
That's the only problem with wirework. If it's too big, I can add wire, but if it's too small, I have to remake it. Oh well. Live and learn :)
Here's some pictures to look at. (I really need to get a proper photo setup to take these pictures!)
"Amethyst Weave Ring" by Lagaz Designs (Melissa Muir).
A juicy cushion checkerboard cut Amethyst stone, nestled securely within sterling silver looping prongs. Delicate weaving surrounds the ring shank, and the base of the gemstone. Tiny Hill Tribe beads add some extra sparkle.
