rings and a few bracelets

here is what i have made over the past few days:

6 rings and 4 bracelets for moab, and 2 rings for the etsy shop

from left to right, aquamarine, chalcedony, prehnite with epidote, moonstone, labradorite, and red rutilated quartz

kayanite, aquamarine, solar quartz, and zebra jasper

and remember i was saying i wanted to make a "riverbank" ring?
from the riverbank, you can watch the river. see the current for what it is. watch the waves and the flow, without being caught up in it. the direction and the movement are so much more clear when you are not moving along with it.

crazy lace agate, smoky quartz, and a clear waterdrop of a rutilated quartz, surrounded by silver river stones of all kinds, with a river flowing on the right side

"take a look at your natural river. what are you? stop playing games with yourself. where's your river going? are you riding with it? or are you rowing against it? don't you see that there is no effort if you're riding with your river?" ~ carl frieseke

let it remind you to step outside of what is so for you and view it from a distance. is it working?

and, lastly, i made another "child of the universe" ring. this stone is as fabulous as the other!

Wow, I'm impressed with all you've made. I can't imagine being able to make all that in a few days.

And your River Bank Ring is so creative - it's a miniature artwork!
