Tourmaline ring born out of fun!
Now and then I allow myself to have some fun in the workshop, or try out something I’ve been wanting to do for ages, but not quite had the time for. I made a ring a while back by fusing silver scraps and wire together and used the resulting “strip” as a ring band. I loved the look of it and set it with a beautiful juicy tourmaline stone, see the ring below.
The ring sold to a lady in the States and I sort of forgot about it, until very recently. I decided to give it a go again and see what I thought of the results. This time I used fresh stock of round wire and bent and twisted it into a rough shape, before fusing it all together. I really like the result and hope to do more like this in future! This band is slightly less rugged and perhaps a little more refined, although still very much organic and one off. The shape of the tangled wire was perfectly suited to set a stone a little offset onto the band and I chose this gorgeous dark teal blue tourmaline for it. This particular colour is really popular and I have a hard time keeping a stock of them, I’m constantly on the hunt!
