About this design:

Hi, my beading friends. I've been too busy lately. Busy at work, gardenworks, a lot of creative ideas to work out, educating silver .....
Last weekend I was having education with silver, and this ring I made for exam work. Please, cross your fingers that "judge" is happy with this!
Partly patinated, mirror polished fine silver with huge Lucky Stone CZ, some carving also.
