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.
