Manda's Wrap Around Mother's Ring

The challenge with doing custom projects is charting new territory, which can cause unexpected things to happen.

Last year at about this time, I created a mother's ring for a woman who had seen a ring on my CustomMade website and wanted something similar. We ended up creating a variation with rough stones, which was a fairly new area for me. The ring I created is featured in a previous blog post.

Well fast forward to this year... there were some problems with the ring, which I fixed and then one day the setting broke clear off the ring. I was horrified to say the least and we agreed to a whole new ring. My customer was incredibly understanding and patient since during this time I had also gone back to work full-time and was not as available as I had been. Her only requiremement for this new ring was to make it with a sapphire and topaz as we had done on the earlier design. I used the same rough topaz only this time it was the other half of the stone. In addition I had taken a stone cutting class this year, so I had a cool looking faceted stone that I created on the stone cutting grinders.

The following is a visual diary/tutorial which I had uploaded to Instagram as I made her new ring.
