Day Off Rings!

My friend Amy made me birthday card rings today... the best part... it gave me the day off from making a ring! OK, maybe that is cheating, but it is my birthday, damn it!

Paper, Ink, Tape.

A week of Rings

I fell really behind this last week on shooting, posting, and frankly... making. Finally trying to get back on track so I am just doing one big post today.

Forged Ring with Stone

Still sort of playing around with these forged ring shapes. I think this one needs a bit of work but I sort of like the direction that it is headed in.

Bandersnatch Eye Ring

I felt compelled to get a giant jawbreaker from the gumball machines at the movie theater when I went to see Alice in Wonderland the other night. I definitely thought it was going to be a ring, but I didn't realize what until half way through the movie. I made the ring and my incredibly talented artist friend Pat Hamou painted the eye.

Copper, Jawbreaker, Acrylic Paint.

Curl Ring

There was a little girl who had a little curl, right in the middle of her forehead. When she was good, she was very very good; when she was bad she was horrid! I looked down at my wrist today and this curl was on my wrist like a bracelet. I decided it would make a great ring.

Orchid Ring

It is no secret that I have a black thumb. The problem is, I just forget to water my plants. This orchid bloom fell off months ago and I have been holding on to it. Now it's a ring.

Orchid flower, iron binding wire.

In Like a Lion Ring

First day of March and all I could think of was this... what is oddly sentimental about it is that the inspiration for this ring is a mane my mom made for me when I played the Lion in "Charlie Brown Goes to the Circus" in First Grade. It promptly fell off me on stage and I was mortified. It pretty much looked like this... at least the way I remember it.

Oh and in honor of it being day 60, and because I promised mike, this has 60 fringes...

Yarn, sentimentality, hope.
