It's Finally Here......

Ring #365/365

Well, with my last name being Ring there just had to be an Andrea Ring ring don't you think? I've known for quite some time that this would be my final ring for the year but it wasn't until Christmas eve when I decided to watch A Series of Unfortunate Events( I really like the visuals in that movie) that I came up with the idea to create an entire scene for that last ring. I hope you've enjoyed the day by day play of this week.

The glow didn't show up on the video but I got a good still shot of it.

Happy New Year and I will see you in 2011 with a Sketch-A-Day!

I've made it to the final week for the Ring A Day challenge,woo hoo!

Most of the rings that I've made have been done very spontaneously without much thought prior to making. I decided to plan out this last weeks rings and do something really fun.

So, here is ring #360 (part 1of 6).

Ring a Day #352 and #353

Steel wire and metal from a King Leo peppermint tin.

Steel wire and tin from a candy container.Only 12 more to go!!

For some reason I have decided to do another challenge next year and will be doing a Sketch-A-Day for 2011. They will mostly be jewelry sketches Im sure but I have enjoyed the discipline of making myself do something everyday. Bryan even said that he may join in on this one!

What have I been making lately?

I made this little metal collage for my friend Rayane's wedding gift. I will definitely be experimenting with more wall pieces.

This was a commissioned piece by Max(Rayane"s fiance, now husband). He gave this to her on the wedding day,very sweet. It took me a couple of months to really figure out just how I was going to build a peacock but out of nowhere while I was sitting at the coffeeshop one night the design popped into my head!

And this necklace is a secret santa gift that I just finished this evening for one of my fellow EtsyMetal team members. I can't wait to send it to her.
