Playing about with wire - my favourite pastime

Recently I have been enjoying mixing wirework and metalwork techniques often referring back to some of my previous wirework designs.  Here is the outcome of playing with some wire and re-visiting the idea of wire blossoms.

Rings, rings and more rings...

I love wearing rings so it's probably not a surprise to hear that I love making rings too.  Over the last few months I have made lots of rings and thought I would share a few here on my blog...

Kyanite gemstone ring between two gently textured rings

Amethyst cabochon within a textured circle

Opal triplet cabochon within a textured circle (oxidised for detail) - so many colours in this cabochon!
My first ever spinner ring (thanks to a very informative video by the wonderful Soham Harrison)

Hugs and Kisses Ring - this was a custom order for a lovely friend who is helping me to stretch my metalworking skills and develop new designs

Gorgeous labradorite - setting beads with corners is quite challenging but I was happy with the result

I love kyanite and this teardrop bead is so beautiful
