The Lily ring, $10
Sometimes it isn’t technique, sometimes it is this creative …force…inside you that pushes the metal one way, your hand to that bead.
And then someone asks you “how pretty! How did you make it?” You don’t know how to answer with anything other than “I don’t know.”
I’m not a metalsmith nor am I big on metal rings. The Lily ring it seems kinda just came to me. I sat down at my work bench and grabbed this vintage pearl necklace and somehow just saw this.
My favorite part is how the two wires flow away from each other and come back. That happened on it’s own as I made the piece.
