Soooo..... I should be studying. But I'm not. I received my new ring blanks in the mail. Just really wanted to get these done.
The one in the bottom left corner is a Weiss earring. I got it at the Sunbury flea market. I was thinking of keeping it for awhile and trying to find another orphaned earring but I really want it as a ring!
The one in the middle is not complete. That is a vintage glass button. After it dries I will glue in the blue resin flowery former vintage earring that also came from the flea market. It is part of a pair but the other will be put on a necklace with white filigree Monet beads (well that is the plan for now). The blue earring fits perfectly in the glass button.
The one on the right was missing it's inner white cabochon. I was thinking a green agate would look awesome, but I am too impatient to wait on another jewelry order and I found I had a labradorite that was the perfect size.
The other 2 pieces you see don't have totally flat backs. So I am looking for other backings (like a button or metal piece) that will be a help. Otherwise I think they may be knocked off the ring blanks to easily.
I will be listing the cream flower, the silver starry one, and probably the blue with vintage button (but I love that button!). But definitely keeping the Weiss rhinestone for myself! I love making rings.
I had some problems with my new lens photographing these. And some of my photos from the other day didn't seem very crisp. Have to do some more research - maybe user error but never had this problem with my other lens before it broke.
