2 fab open back sterling silver ring shanks arrived on my door mat yesterday morning. I could hardly contain myself, I have not made any cocktail rings for a while. I went straight to work and made this one, Vortex. The focal bead was made by lovely Laura Sparling http://beadsbylaura.co.uk/ and I have added added fresh water pearls, Czech and Swarovski crystals, amethyst, moonstone, cherry quartz, shell chips and fluorite to compliment the swirling vortex of lilacs and pinks in the lampwork bead. It is listed on both my folksy store
http://folksy.com/items/120286-Vortex?shop=yes and my own website http://kookiedesigns.web.officelive.com/cocktailrings.aspx I am thinking Carnelian flowers and lots of Amber's and oranges for the other ring.
Have a super day xxxxxxxx
