Rings that Sparkle and Flash

 Getting ready for the Gallery showing Saturday April 16th - at Flourish Arts, Birchgrove (see post below) - I have come up with some beautiful ring designs, using those adjustable ring templates. This is this morning's creation using a 6mm Swarovski Fuschia crystal as the centrebead and surrounding this with black and silver Swarovski crystals then edging it in fuschia. The top is about the size of a 50 cent coin.
BOY does it flash and sparkle !.
Another one using a Swarovski Emerald 6mm crystal centre bead and surrounding it in the silver Swarovski and edging it in the emerald again. I like the touches of  purple around the outer edge.

and here is yesterdays original creation where it all started. A Swarovski 6mm Ruby centrebead surrounded in the new Coral Opal Swarovski crystals, then silver and then edging it in the AB Clear crystals. I like how the seed beads form a star like pattern.

These four are smaller in size - about the size of a 20 cent coin. The have a 6mm Swarovski centrebead - one being a pearl - then three rows of Swarovski crystals. The seed bead really compliments the centrebead, making a really delicate and very flashing ring any woman would want to be seen wearing. I love making these and am sure they will be well received in the gallery.
