natural mandalas












































I made all the individual parts for each of these rings, they were incredibly time consuming to make. I cracked one of the stones in the spiralled/green onyx ring just as I was finishing setting it, I managed to remove the cracked stone and replace it but the bezel was slightly damaged so I don't think I'll sell that ring. I'm looking forward to making some pieces now that don't consist of so many little pieces that need to be soldered together in a symmetrical pattern!

I'll be listing these in my Etsy store on Tuesday morning (although I may not be able to part with the first ring!).
