These are nice.  Where do you, or did you, get the ring forms?  I have been trying to find some to make rings with.

check etsy for ring forms.  Search "ring blanks".  There are a few different types, I prefer the less expensive ones with the waffle type pad.  You can also buy them in bulk from Rings&Things, and probably some other places. 

Nice rings, btw daughter!!

I also love some of the jewelry anthropologie has, but screw them and their overpriced-ness! Your ring looks just as good!

Love your rings and your reproduction is much prettier than anthropologie's. I took a look at their jewelry collection and found some beautiful lace earrings, I'm gonna make.
Thanks for sharing your goodies.

Ooooh, I love them. Smiley Thanks for the tip about ring blanks as well - they're something I've been trying to remind myself to buy for ages.
