New Jewelry!  
 Some new things I've been sitting on for a week or so:






So, the top piece was going to be a "spinner" ring, but it ended up too wide to fit comfortably.  It makes a beautiful necklace, though.  Spinning rings and meditation rings were designed for those who like to fiddle, or even for those who don't normally. They can be useful in times of worry or stress, or just fun to play with.  The spinning band is an elaborate pattern, oxidized to show the pattern.  The join of the ring is a visible break in the pattern, that gives a stopping and starting place for spinning the ring around the filigree base.  The filigree is designed and hand forged by me.

  

The headband is a new piece in my hair accessory line.  Headbands in the store always give me headaches.  I haven't worn one in years.  But my new, curlier hair seems wasted in a ponytails, so I made a custom headband designed to fit the size and shape of my head.  No headache yet from wearing it, in fact most of the time I forget it's even there.  I thought others might be interested, so I'm offering them in my store, in either aluminum or copper.  I'm asking for a measurement when they're ordered, so I can truly customize each headband for each customer.

I like the headbands! One idea/suggestion... have ones that are bent up or curled back for those of us who wear glasses? I had to stop wearing headbands when I started wearing glasses because I either had to bend them over the glasses or under, and it's uncomfortable either way :(

(PS: I tried your washing/rinsing suggestions, and things are going really well. I haven't washed my hair since Saturday morning (but rinsed with conditioner each night), but it still feels great and it's nice and glossy now.)

These are actually bent back to accommodate my glasses, at least. I can always bend them back a few mm extra to be sure they work for all glasses-wearers. :) I should probably put that in the listing.

Oh, good, I'm so glad that's working for you. I'm actually just getting ready to do a 'hair-update' post.

Awesome! Then I'll have to measure my head when I get home and make an order ^_^

Nifty nifty! I think I might like a ring like that, if you get it down to size....and I think I might want a headband too....
