It must be my new mandrel. Or how quickly the time seems to fly when making something petite.

This one was a ring I spent a full day planning - deciding how to curl the silver wire (up and back? down? flared out?), figuring out the best way to attach the pearl to be secure yet mostly invisible. I'm very proud of the result, and plan to make a few similar designs with other center stones now too!

That is really pretty and yet simple. Keep practicing and you'll be even better in no time!
