RAW #8

another painted wood with granulated disk on sterling silver ring assembly. this time i left the granulation shiny instead of distressing and adding liver of sulphur.
try to ignore all the new-puppy battle scars :)

RAW #7

busy, busy, busy week with the new pooch, but loving every minute of it! he does not however support my art habit :) he seems to prefer me to play with him instead of in the studio. i did manage to get another ring done this week though...

this week's ring needed to be fast so i did another painted wood one. looks kind of like a spider doesn't it? the wood is riveted to a sterling silver ring assembly.
have a great weekend!

RAW #6

after a short delay here is RAW #6! Figo is being picked up we speak so more pix of him later!

this first pic is for Jewel. you wanted to see the back/assembly? i use fine silver rivets to attach all the elements. the ring shank is soldered to another silver disk that is riveted through the wood and top silver.
this new ring is more of my ocd dots coupled with a large disk of my distressed granulation.
its a bit heavier than the other dot rings due to the metal top level, but still really nice on.
stay tuned for RAW #7 and of course more pictures of Figo!

Puppy Fever

i finished RAW #6 today, but before posting that (tomorrow), just had to share....
we found out which puppy we are getting! meet Mr. Black! or as we like to call him, Figo (pronounced 'feego')! those of you who know us well are probably wondering what wine that is. well this time it's not! he's named after a real madrid soccer player from portugal ;)
more pictures after he arrives on saturday...

RAW #5

okay, i admit it, i might have gone a little crazy with this one. this is one of two mongo disks that i painted with my ocd-dot design. originally they were going to be pendants, but i was holding it in my hand and it screamed to be a ring. no joke, true story. so here it is really big, though lightweight and comfy, ring.
