This ring might look easy to make. Surprisingly, it is not. Goldsmiths spend YEARS learning how to make pieces perfectly. We try to NOT make pieces that are somewhat messy and all over the place. BUT GUESS WHAT. When the experienced goldsmith sits down to make something that isn't all perfect..it comes out very cleanly. This ring is to try my hand at a design that is fluid, relaxed as well as well done. I have made several of these and will continue to try to perfect the unperfectable.
