Jewellery out of anything?

I have had a long weekend away and although I took some silver wire and had some tools with me decided that at least one of my rings would have to be made quickly from something I 'found'.  I had picked this bit of cellophane up at MIMA in Middlesbrough on Thursday evening when I went to a really inspiring talk by the jeweller Ted Noten.  It was still in my bag so became Saturday's ring of the day.  I like to occasionally play around with odd materials and even though it is just a bit of wrapping tied in a not it has a kind of flamboyance and definitely the sparkle we expect in jewellery.  Just a bit of fun really
