I know this isn't the same, but in highschool we used to steal spoons and forks from the cafeteria and make bracelets and chokers.  We would bend the fork prongs so it could hold something too.

You can also go to a specialized jewelry supply store and get ring molds with the centers already cut out.  You just have to use files to wittle away until it fits, which is what we did in high school for the centrifugal lost wax rings.

I've got about three of those suckers, and none of them look as good as yours. =P  Each looks a little better than the last, though, so I guess it's practice makes perfect.

yeah we have some blocks of wax that are ring tubes, but I can't stand them. I like complete control over the thickness/size of my rings. I'm a control freak.

The name comes from the fact that I often eat lunch and work at the same time. At this point I've probably ingested pretty much every art checmical known to man.

I just wanted to add that I have a necklace my grandmother gave me that is a spoon handle.  It's one of those really old intricate spoons, it's very different and I love it. She also had a ring that was made from a spoon handle, it was made like a wrap.

I'm a big fan of the wax-loss process!  At first I thought you said you used a fork for it, and I thought it was cool that you kept "a piece of the fork" so to speak, the top of the ring looks like the tines, but i guess not...  That's really a cute ring, though!  Lunch is over-rated!  I definitely audited my lunch period, so that I could take AP Studio Art...  Art rocks my world!  It's also nice when you have a chance to learn nifty things like the wax-loss process.  I plan on doing a lot of that for my portfolio this year...  Cheesy

The yarn seduced me, I swear!!
