I think you did a fabulous job! I've seen some woven/braided rings, and I've seen plenty of cluster rings, but there aren't many that incorporate both together!  Smiley

This ring is fantastic! I absolutely love it! Really nice job.

(I hate to post the same thing that everyone else is posting... you know -- just to say, "Wow, that's beautiful!" But sometimes... you just gotta. And this time, I just had to.)

i've definately sold my version (not dissimilar to yours) of woven cluster rings for between $10 and $15 (ocassionally higher), which given the amount of time i got it down to, and the cost of supplies, was a good deal for me.

It's beautiful!  I need to start playing with wire more.  As far as pricing goes, I'm not too good with pricing either.  It would really depend on how much the materials cost, but no less than $20 for sure.

The ring is beautiful.  I love cluster rings - there is something about them that reminds me of summer.  I agree that you could sell them for $20 no problem.

Wow, this ring is great, my daughter and just love it and we want to have a go at making one, is the weaving plating? and where do all the ends go? - behind the beads? but we're really not sure we can make one :-)
So please please get some listed on etsy!  :-)

Do you have an etsy shop already, we'd love to see your other creations! - please let us know :-)

Thanks, everyone!

Ruby, I don't have an etsy shop.  I'm currently working up a website in conjunction with my sister, mother and a good friend, though.  So, SOON, there will be a way to buy things.  I swear.  To answer your other questions, the weaving is just a basic braid, only with five strands (each braid strand consists of two pieces of wire) instead of three.  All the ends are used to hold the beads on, actually.  I brought the ends around, twisted the ends together to make it a circle, then put beads on each pair of wires and curled the wires around to hold the beads on.
