    Default a few rings.

    So I've still been playing around, stocking an etsy page and generally muddling my way along.
    Just though I would show off these 3 that I made this week.
    One is amethyst, one is citrine and the other is a rose cut garnet.
    The rose cut was a bit of a bugger if I'm honest but I think it turned out ok.
    What do you guys think?

    They are looking professional now, Sam. I reckon you should sell them. And while you're at it, why stop at rings? Dennis.

    They look great!

    Particularly liking the last one as its an uncommon design.

    I like the citrine one and reminded me I have a little one somewhere in a box so you've inspired me to make something with it this weekend!

    Well thank you guys, especially you Dennis! I've learnt so much from you and Chris (and countless others) that for you to say such kind words is pretty amazing!
    Don't worry though I make other things also... I do like to make rings though, I'm not sure if you have noticed.

    Anybody else get that feeling of up most success when you make a setting that the gemstone actually clicks into?
    Just finished fabrication of two other rings (the stones where purchased with the designs in mind, sorry dennis) and both stones fit perfectly.
    I think I will treat myself to a beer now they are pickling

    I think your rings look fabulous Sam, its been great to join in on your journey, they should do well on Etsy!
    I keep acquiring stones and really need to improve on setting them.
