60s Inspired flower ring

Here is my first ring for February.  It is made in faux bone in two pieces; the ring shank and the flower separately.  I then drilled the two sections and a small circular piece of sterling silver and riveted them all together.  I had filed the lines into both sections and added the alcohol ink before sanding back and then joining the pieces.  Faux bone is a great medium for practising rivets as it is very durable.  I wondered whether to make a spinner type ring but in the end opted for joining the sections firmly together so this one is static.
