Ring takes a turn

More of the ongoing saga on making my first metalsmithed ring. I thought I'd have a complete ring to show this week, but, (of course) I made the band, and soldered nicely, to find..... the stone did not fit! I was very frustrated. So scratch the snowflake obsidian that I originally had. I could not find a stone in the teachers box of stones, so yesterday I went to a bead and shell shop that I had heard about, but was not sure where it was located.
Jackpot. I found a piece of American turquoise, that is just a little larger than my bezel, so I filed it a bit, and I think we have a match! I just need to fit it in and finish the sides this week.

A couple of new items in my shop this week:
Sterling silver and pearl earrings-dangle

Sterling silver coiled bracelet-boro beads-Thai silver shell beads

That's all for now. Have a happy Saturday night!
