Another PMC ring with a fused glass cab; and this one is mine
If you make jewelry, it just makes sense that you need a few pieces to wear yourself. It’s a fun necessity to exhibit your work.
OK, I admit, it’s not so much about advertising in this case as it is very simply about wanting it. I really like the last triangle ring I made but, unfortunately, it wasn’t my size. So I made a variation of it and this time it happened to be my size (how did that happen?!).
It is made from Precious Metal Clay (PMC3) and has a whopping 11g of fine silver. The cabochon is fused glass in purple and green, one of my favorite color combination. To bring out the edges of the half circles, I used Liver of Sulphur to darken the steps.
It looks nice in this photo but it looks even better on my hand! =)

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.
