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.
