Thank you Fire Mountain Gems!! For carrying great beads & for selecting one of my Wire Wrapped Rings as Second Place winner in in the Accessories Category of the 2006 Annual Beading Contest!!! I am honored & excited! This ring was created with an amethyst focal bead and Czech glass accent beads...it is exquisite---one of those pieces of jewelry that can only be created via wire wrapping...cast jewelry doesn't hold a candle to wire wrapped filigree jewelry!! This ring has a delicate filigree look, but is tough as nails...each loop hardens the half-hard wire until it is like steel!! This is my 'Victorian Wire Wrapped Filigree Ring'...I'm working on a few different pieces to place in our store...same design with a mixture of different of stones! Quartz crystals look fabulous in this setting too!!
