For this challenge I just had to make a piece of jewellery, as that is my passion! I made this ring for myself using a high quality clear Quartz and rose gold coloured wire. I wrapped the shank


Attached the stone and wrapped around it:



And finished it off with wire wrapped shoulders:


It was a challenge for me as I normally wear great big rings, so to make a small and dainty one that would suite my massive fingers wasn't easy, but I am very pleased with the final item:


I hope you like it Smiley

Lovely ring design, very organic-looking in form (Do they make metallic green wire?  I bet you'd get a cool vine-like appearance with that hue).  How long does it tank to wrap/twist the wire into a ring like this one?
