RAW # 8 (ring of the week)

Plan A for this week's ring didn't actually work out so well as a ring so I had to go with Plan B.

Plan A was to make something like this:

While I can totally understand this drawing, you probably have no clue what it means so let me explain....The center teardrop is a stone. It has four little wires or "legs" coming off of it with little circles at the end (more stones). The "legs" are attached to another teardrop made of wire that the little stones sit on. When finished it will look kind of like the large stone is suspended inside the wire teardrop. It came together perfectly but before putting on the band it started to look more and more like a pendant to me. It took me about a half an hour of going back and forth between a ring and a pendant before I finally made the call. Looking at the photo below you can see what I decided.

So then I needed to go to Plan B.... I have been playing around with some new die shapes I have made for my hydraulic press. Since I had a bunch of copper pieces laying around on my bench that I used to test out my dies, I figured that would be a good place to start. This is what I came up with:

It kind of reminds me of a ravioli...hhmmm...I think I just found it's name :)
