Hand-Stamped Personalized Ring

Monogrammed jewelry is a great way to give a personal gift for any occasion- or for no occasion at all like this lakeshore lavaliere gold tone hand-stamped brass ring:

This hand stamped gold tone brass ring was a gift for my roommate, who is also the lovely hand model you see in the pictures below. After stamping the blank with her initials, I used the oxidation process that I mentioned in my last post to really make sure the letters were a nice and dark contrast to the rest of the blank. Then, I punched two holes to slip the wire through in order to anchor the blank to the wire ring base & added a metal & jewelry adhesive as well to create a firmer hold. I made the ring’s base from gold tone non-tarnish copper 18-gauge wire, which is definitely the wire I prefer to work with because it doesn’t nick every time you touch it with a tool like most other jewelry/craft wires.

I’ve always loved all things monogrammed, and this ring was a fun way to be able to give a gift to the girl who is bravely entering her third year of sharing a residence with me. Next up: a ring for my other roommate.

These rings are available in any size, in silver, and can be personalized with anyone’s initials (or a word or name as long as it is short enough to fit on the blank!)

Flower Cabochon Filigree Ring

 

Resin cabochons, like the aqua flower cabochon on this ring, make for beautiful decorative additions to a piece of jewelry. I’ve seen them used in many different ways, like these earrings & barrettes below:

and I thought that a resin flower cabochon would look great as part of a large statement ring. I used an antique gold  filigree base and a decorative antique gold bezel to really accent and make the aqua flower cabochon pop:

New Rings!

Large rings with stones are everywhere right now, and are a great way to supplement a statement necklace, larger attention grabbing earrings, or even a headband with a pendant/big flower when you want to wear another accessory but don’t want your outfit to look too crowded or busy. Large necklaces coupled with large earrings are often too much, can look gaudy or tacky when worn together, and can even add visual weight to your face and head- no matter how classy/cute they are when they are worn separately. Rings however, are far enough away where they don’t add any more visual weight to your face/head, and don’t detract from any headbands, earrings, or necklaces that you might be wearing. They are a great way to accessorize an outfit without going overboard!
