You guys! My first soldered piece I feel confident enough to sell. :D I know, it looks almost exactly like the last ring I posted, the one I made for a friend. Because it's the same design. This time, I oxidized it to bring out the pretty pattern more. :)

More info and pics at the Etsy store. :D

So, so pretty. Labradorite, I'm assuming?

I've liked all the metalwork pics you've posted so far.

Thank you! It's been a frustrationg road to learn metalsmithing, so it's exhilirating to finally be producing something worthwhile. :D

ETA: And yes, it is labradorite! I have a sort of labradorite problem. As in, I love it so much I can't resist buying and using it.

That is so beautiful.

I am still trying to find out my sister's ring size, btw.

Thanks. :)

And sizing is definitely important. I've got some amethyst coming in that you may like, as well.

I believe you! In the meantime, just think how much better at this I'll be by then. :D

Oh wow! It's so organic looking--like the stone is blooming from the silver.
