My ring

So tonight was my last jewelry class and I finished the ring I've been working on for the last couple of weeks. I wanted to make a piece of jewelry to represent my journey and adventure, but I didn't know what and I was thinking possibly a pendant.

When I first made my ring I wanted a thick band. Once I finished it I wasn't too happy because I felt like it needed something more. And then it hit me, the something more could be my reminder of my journey.

So my journey is my time-out. I was getting lost in everything and just floating around without direction. I now have my direction but what's the best way to represent direction? A compass!

It took me a couple tries before I got the design right, but I got it! I cut 4 circles and stamped N, S, W, E on them. (North, South, West, and East). My ring is made of stirling silver.

(I also made a pair of earrings, pendant, and another ring. I merged some metals together to make a broach, but I didn't get that done so I'll be finishing that when I get home.)
