I had been wanting to learn how to wire wrap rings using Eni Oken's techniques. I checked out her designs for over a year and finally decided that I was skilled enough to make one of those beautiful rings. I studied the tutorial for at least 2 weeks before I even got up the nerve to tackle the ring and the intense wire wrapping involved. I spent a couple of days working on the same set of steps for a couple more days before I was happy with the results. This ring is a tiger eye ring with a 20mm tiger eye cabochon. It is wrapped with all sterling silver wire. The ring is a size 8. Now to find this ring a new home. The title is a clickable link, which will bring to the listing on etsy.

This week the estyBEAD theme is "Pearls", and the sale is October 28 to November 3. I was lucky enough to visit the treasury a find that treasuries would be available to curate in a few minutes. I wanted to feature my favorite pieces of jewelry that were on sale and also include some of my friends. I think you find some great sales this week and an awesome selection of beautiful jewelry. This link on the title is clickable for the next couple of days if you would like to visit this treasury on etsy.
