Rings


Here is a relatively easy bracelet design that was inspired by the wonderful Vintaj Brass Idea Gallery- I have had this old coin kicking around my stash for a few years I think, I'm not even sure where it came from.
I repeated the circle shape around one half of the bracelet using Vintaj Brass jump rings, and some double drilled brass rings from Patina Queen, the coin, and a lampwork ring from Blue Seraphim. A double strand of Vintaj Brass etched cable chain on the other half of the piece.
This bracelet is available for sale in my shop here.
Really looking forward to some goodies coming in the mail this week. I ordered some Susan Lenart-Krasner bezels from Fusion, along with some wood rings that I want to play around with. I also got some new chain too.
Hope everyone has a great Monday!!
