Contemporary One-Of-A-Kind Ring; Geometric Forms in Fine Silver and Fused Glass
I did not realize how much I seem to like triangles. Looking back at my precious metal clay pieces, the triangle seems to dominate the scene. So here is another triangular ring that I just finished.
I think this one came out really nice with a certain je ne sais quoi about it. I might be at the point where my work is good enough for selling. Notice the ‘might’ in that last sentence. I am still not entirely sure about it. It takes a mountain of evidence for me to be at peace with the quality of my work.
In any case, I am kind of annoyed that I didn’t make this ring in my size. I’m not sure if I like the idea of letting it go anyway.

I try to create crisp edges and clear shapes in many of my pieces by cold working the glass after the fusing process. Cold working is a time consuming process in which the glass is sanded with consecutively finer and finer grid until it is shaped and the glass is completely smooth.
Many of the pendants, brooches and earrings have 99.9% pure silver inclusions and all of the wire and bails I use are sterling silver.
