Made after a yummy dinner of pork and other fixins at the local, and most delicious, Char No. 4. On the way back we noticed some cool lamps in a restaurant that inspired this. Note: Always grab business cards for last minute ring making needs!
The challenge this week was to design something for a celebrity, and on the show it was for Heidi Klum.
These were already in progress, so at the last minute I decided I would try to finish them for this challenge. I really don't have a celebrity that I want to design for so I just thought of Heidi. She likes big earring and these are pretty big.
I am taking a stone setting class and really struggled with the first project: flush setting. So I made a ring and attempted it in my studio. One is pretty crooked, but overall it worked so I am pretty happy!
Note to self: Do not put paper rings in your bag for 24 hours. They will end up just like an Ikea couch. A trip to Ikea and little time yielded this one, which was actually sort of pretty when it was made at dinner. Well, now it's just more angular.
What can I say, I just love Burnt Bun Boy. I have no idea what he is saying, but am sure it must be along the lines of... woe is me, i am always getting toasted in the oven. Well, he has my love always. And I bet he is delicious too. Mmm, brioche.
Another scrap ring. This is the first time I kind of cheated. Technically, I made this ring yesterday. Oops! It is made of the left over silver from my sequins series, for which I punch out the parts using the best tool ever... The Roper Whitney Jr. handpunch!

For the year 2010, I have given myself the challenge to create a ring every day. They can be made out of anything. The only restriction is that I must make one ring every day for 365 days. I will be posting all of my rings here.
Several other artists have joined me in this challenge. You can see their work here: http://www.flickr.com/groups/rad2010/
