Where I post pictures of things I made.

Sterling and copper. The center ring is made from the same wire as the outer rings, drawn as thin as I could make it and then three strands were twisted together. The center ring spins. And rattles.

And it feels different. When I first finished it, I thought I would only wear it for special occasions, because it feels fragile, like holding a bird, and tensioned, like a bow must feel. Then when I put it on a couple of days ago, just to look at it, my finger remembered how much it needs a ring, and I remembered that I’d made this ring for that finger. So. Done.

And to prove that I’m alive;

I put the ring in the snow, and the snow immediately melted. Metal is cool. Or warm, I guess.
