If you are a regular follower of my blog you would be forgiven for thinking I have made nothing but birds since the start of the year!!
I have been making some other things as well though - honestly :-)
To prove the point here are a couple of rings. I don't normally make large rings like this so this made a change for me. The one above I have called Regal Ring. I bought this large CZ (plus a few others) at the UK Art Clay conference last year with no idea what to do with them. This is my attempt at setting it. Very OTT isn't it!
I set 2mm lab rubies onto the ring band and one onto the face of the large CZ. My friend Bev has one of these huge stones as well so I can't wait to see what she makes with it.
Here is the back of the ring...
This next ring has a 2mm white CZ in the centre at the front and 3mm CZs around the band. The turquoises are enamel.
So there you go - a blog post without a bird or a bit of ceramic in sight!!
Don't worry though, the next birdie will be here soon....... ;-)
