I'm such a procrastinator
I've had all of these fantastic cabs lurking around in my stash but I've never got around doing anything with them... Yesterday I finally took them out and started working on them. I am not much for sketching. I just like to see what happens. It becomes what it needs to become. All the glass cabs came from a trade I did with Daydreamglass. I traded a pair of pinwheels for a whole bag of cabs. I love her stuff. I already got a bunch of her rings!
I was thinking of attaching these little balls next to the ring band. I think it will go nicely with the other round features of the ring. I've just propped it up for the photo so hopefully it won't be all wonky when I go and actually solder it to the bezel.
Ok, isn't this one cool? It's pretty big too. I think it's almost an inch and a half. It reminded me of being close to the ocean and watching the sunset... It's going to be one chunky ring!
I was experimenting with water casting and I made these tiny ones. They had just been sitting on my work bench until now. The gladd cabs has little bubbles in it and it made me think of water so there you go. Perfect! I thought they looked like tiny flowers next to the bezel. This is also going to be a pretty big ring.
I adore the ceramic seaurchins I got. I have a coupe more that I need to play with. The one with the pebbles is going to be a necklace, I just haven't decided on how I want to hang it. I might attach a hidden bail on the back and keep it clean. I also want to cut around all the pebbles for a more organic shape. The other one with the fancy bail is definitely going to be a ring.. That one will be hard to part with. I just love it already even though it has a long way to go :o)
They are all very rough right now and need some serious TLC.... I just hope I can steal some more time out of my busy schedule and finish them! :o)
