    Default One Step Forward Two Steps Back.

    A message came up to say that a family member had lost a large gold ring I made. I agreed to replace it but suggested it had best be only silver this time.

    We decided not repeat the design as it had not brought much luck, but instead used a more elaborate variation of my very first ring, made at Morley College when I joined, in the summer term of 1994.

    There is the moon with stars, some cut out and some attached, and the sun rising above a cloud.
    I also needed hide the join on the finely textured background and came up with the idea using her birth sign, Capricorn to make it more personal.

    A little exercise in piercing and wire bending. Dennis.
