My New Favorite Ring

Cheryl, over at J.A.N. made a wide band ring with a brass dragonfly on it, and I loved it so much I had to make one!

Wide bands tend to get stuck on my fat fingers, so I just sweat soldered the tiny brass dragonfly to a piece of 24g sterling, then made a splint shank for it. It is extra comfortable, and I adore it!

These little dragonflies are addictive! I'm almost finished with a matching pendant, and I love it, too! I see earrings, bracelets, pendants, and rings all done with small brass stampings! I have butterflies on their way to me now. I can't wait to get them.

I hope you all had a fabulous weekend! "See" you later~
