Another thing I’ve been busy with these days is creating adjustable rings for the upcoming Car Show at the Elks Lodge in South San Francisco on October 20th.
I use regular adjustable ring blanks and use semi-precious stones and Swarovski crystal elements to “pretty them up”, by attaching

them with head pins.
I curl the head pins around and loop them through each other, creating an interesting, unique design for each. I make sure that each headpin has a concealed end so that it won’t catch on anything, or scratch the skin.

Each stone and crystal is placed in the rings safe and secure. I have a lot of fun making these and with cluster rings being a popular item currently, I have a feeling these may go pretty fast.
What’s nice, is that I will be able to offer these for under $20, so customers will be getting a quality-made ring at a decent price!
