RAW52.4 (or not as easy as I thought)

This week I had to make quite a few Pebble pendants and decided the RAW will be a pebble ring as well. I was using Venice beach pebbles which are dark charcoal in color, almost black, and are very easy to drill. They are also the flattest I can find on any beach. I don’t know what the actual rock is and I suppose I should try to find out. I was very excited about the design, so excited that I didn’t sketch or even think about it. I was going to just wing it…

Ring a Week #4
Normally, my pebble pendants are just riveted in the back. For this ring, I decided to make a traditional bezel construction with the rivets on the back of the bezel plate. Since I didn’t really think about how to make the ring, I mis-placed the rivet holes. They ended up being too close to the ring shank, and it took me hours to properly rivet them.

Ring a Week #4In the end though, I think it’s a very successful ring. It feels great and looks very cool. I love the shiny smooth silver against the dark matte of the stone. As usual, Selma is modeling the ring.

Ring a Week #4She is starting to complain about how I have her sit there and do it. Maybe next time I’ll make a ring for her…

Ring a Week #4Later this week, I’ll try to post pictures of the pendants I made. They look AWESOME!
