Wire - Rings

... I simply can't stop! I love rings! Ring rings and more rings. These are two new rings that I made this weekend. I wanted a channel set style wire wrap ring. So I tried one out last night. I finished it around midnight! The green ring I just love! It's got a real spring feel to it and a lower profile. Too much fun with a pair of cutters, round nose pliers and wire! This ring is a version of my Royal Treasures Boleyn Series tutorial available on and on

Playing with shrink plastic

I don't remember playing with Shrinky Dinks when I was a kid. I remember them existing, but not actually playing with them. A few months ago I wanted to make some charms. I wanted to do some mehndi inspired pieces. So I got out the shrink plastic and started messing around. Well, the obsession has continued :) So, I bought some more and have been experimenting with it. Here are a few pieces that I made this week. I finished them up yesterday.
