i'm really excited today because not only am i finished with the first model for my jewelry line, but i have started on a matching ring! it is coming along quickly and beautifully. rings are sort of my forte. i have made so many in the past that even after 4 1/2 years, it's like second nature to me. (thanks to my amazing teacher who made sure i'd never forget a thing he taught me!)
the bangle will be sent out for casting in the next few days. unfortunately, i don't have that type of set-up here in my little apartment so i do have to pay for outside help beyond the model making realm. i can say that i'm a little nervous to let my 70 hours of work leave my hands. but i'm sure everything will be fine and in a few weeks time i'll be posting pics of the finished (and sellable) product right here on this little blog!
anyway, here's a photo of the finished model...
a little sneak peek of the ring in progress!
