Bowl of fruits ring
My sister came up with that name...I liked it!
I have to tell the story behind this piece.
The ring itself was part of another ring that I didn't like at all: it was my first day at jewelry school and as always, I decided not to follow the design we had to make. So I made things more complicated, as usual...don't ask me why! I was not happy at all with the top of the ring, I was about to melt it and start from scratch, but I said to myself, "I have half a ring done, why not change the top?" And I did. Thanks to a tiny silver spoon (a souvenir from a wedding I think)and wire and oxidised silver, this is the result of recycled items. I was planning to keep it in my finger but after a couple of years, now it's on sale. I really like it and I hope you do too.
I forgot to mention that this is a OOAK ring, I do not like to repeat myself, unless is by request...
