Rings rings and more rings

This week's focus was on rings; other than take two classes, I've never attempted rings, and the pile of wire I have added to my scraps will attest to it! Yikes!! I started out doing simple spirals to get the sizing concept down, using different gauges of sterling and gold filled and different tempers. After doing the twist thing I filed the edges of the ends and tumbled for quite some time to harden and shine. I wasn't unhappy with these. Then I decide hey, I can take the next step, adding in a stone! After managing to kill a bunch of wire coming up with just these few, I ordered tutorials from Remy and Jim.... more to come!!!
