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.
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.
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...

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/
