Rings


You might remember this photo from my post on the Journee du Fait Main.  I had asked someone to pose with two of the newest additions to De Petites Merveilles because I wanted to see how they would look on someone. I'm glad to say they look great. What's new you ask?  We now have rings!

It started with my recent find of French pate de verre cabochons from the 1930s  during a recent buying trip.  Their colors are so pretty and so summery that I had to buy them even though I don't normally use cabochons.  Fortunately they're just right for making rings! I'd long wanted to try making them and here was the chance to start. I figure if they don't turn out well, I'd at least have tried. 


See here one of my first efforts...not bad right? I love that it looks like a flower.

Here's another angle..

 And finally, my favorite one so far is this one I made from crystals.  I don't know if you can tell from the photo but its actually two colors, a very pale yellow and white!
 I couldn't resist another photo of it!
Now I just have to add them to the store!
