made of nickel silver

I'm not entirely sure how the fishbone idea came to mind, but the ring didn't turn out exactly how I planned (which is a good thing, because it would be a painful ring if I did what I wanted)

my first idea was for it to be swimming in between my fingers. I couldn't get the shape right, so...
I decided to have the bones wrap around my fingers (rendering my pinky immobile and useless) but because of my first idea, I didn't make the bones long enough to wrap more than halfway around my finger

so now there's a wire ring inside the bones, and the bones don't poke into my finger every time I move it. not a very interesting story, sorry haahah ~




bring on the opinions and critiques (please) !
