Sterling silver ring forged with Abalone shell cabochon in the middle.

My friend Nova wanted something special, rummaged through my boxes and found a little bag of shell cabochons.
The hardest part of this ring was the commandment on how it must be made.
"I want it to be Elven-inspired. And watery. (Ok, sure!) And you have to be happy when you make it. I don't care how long it will take, but only work on it when you're happy! I want good vibes in it! (Wait.. what?! O.o )"
It turned out to be trickier than expected, I'm a rather grumpy goldsmith these days and there's been a lot going on that isn't helping me with "happy" either.

Anyway, now it's finished, and she loved it. And I was happy making it for her. ;)

You achieved that feel the ring was looking for! But what I love about this ring is that I like the look of the ring band's detail looks like it has been a ring that been tempered underwater for some time. It really something you should be proud of! Great work!

A very happy vibe indeed. I am not sure I want to tell you the environment for making a wizard's Ring of Power. :giggle:
