Sunflower Ring: Look Away Now Little Sis!
However, my lovely jewellery teacher Lizzie came to the result and persuaded me to bring my half finished projects for her to see. Rather than rolling about on the floor with laughter at the sight of some of my less sucessful creations, as I might have done, she was touchingly kind. She also constructively taught me the useful skill of unjoining a botched up bit of soldering.
So, for the last few weeks I've been thinking of what I could do with the newly detached flower. All sorts of wild schemes came into my head. After looking through a few designs for rings I realised that a simple solution had been eluding me. The ring didn't need to have fancy leaves, twisted bits or a textured metal band. Keeping it plain and simple was going to work wonders.
