FAM 1/12 - Candy Colored Rings
A new design challenge on flickr - Four A Month, or FAM in short. We come up with 4 related designs each month. This will push us to think in terms of series or sets, or even beginning pieces of a full blown collection for future explorations. By the end of each month, we post our work on flickr to share with others. Here's the link to check out what everyone else makes.
For January, I came up with some rings. I was just dying to try to make some wide band rings, and I managed to find some delicious candy colored stones for them. The stones I used are (from top to bottom, left to right) blue chalcedony, lapis lazulli, amazonite, larimar, rainbow moonstone, chrysoprase, and tangerine orange chalcedony. What do you think? I already got a custom order to make a round amazonite ring (center) at a size 7. YAY!
