sometimes when you’re stressed, anxious, and just plain tired of worrying about crap, you need to get your hands dirty and focus on something that doesn’t have to do with any of the things on your mind.
So I made these today. Not bad for two and a half hours of work. They can still be shined up a bit more and the color can be improved, and I will hook the wire around to make loops so that they can be earrings.
I may or may not have stolen the idea from the earrings I rebloogled last night.
So I was going for a ring like the ones I made in the past, but I didn’t press the gears in enough so they didn’t solder down. But I sort of like how this turned out too. I put the ring in Liver of Sulfur to oxidize it and sanded it off, leaving the indents to remain colored.
if anyone is interested in getting a ring like this, feel free to ask me about it on my tumblr or Deviantart :D
