One old Friendship

About this design:

Well, I began to make a ring, a silver band! Hmm... did not succeed and was a bit frustrated, took a hammer and made a few marks on the band...
I just kept thinking of a certain old friend of mine, took some bright silver parts, took some darker - You know, the friendship is like that: there are many bright moments, some a bit sad ones. I think that labradorite is the stone of friendship, looks almost grey and plain and not so special, but the flash! Best moments ever! Of course one component has two hearts!


Silver components, Labradorite

    I LOVE THIS!!! I also love your description and it reminds me of my dearest friend of 32 years. If this is typical of your “failures” then I’d love to be the one to wear a failure everyday!
