Lately I started wearing big cocktail rings. It’s not only that I like them – oh no! I have to admit that rings are my new obsession. Big rings, bold rings, romantic rings, ultra modern rings. Love them all 🙂
My passion for making lampwork beads and my newly discovered love for cocktail rings naturally made me wonder how I can combine those two things. There were in the past already some options available to add your lampwork beads to a ring, but none of the systems really worked with the designs that I have in mind.
But now there is a new system of ring bases available, and this look really appeals to me. Just what I was after!
It took me a little while to find all the right supplies and get started on this, but here is for the readers of my blog (and my Facebook/The Hive friends) the first sneak preview to my newest project: lampworked rings.
And the best of it? The lampworked ring tops are interchangeable.
Get one, get two or even more tops to mix & match with your daily mood or wardrobe!
The lampworked tops simply screw off … and back on. Easy, right?
That was exactly what I was looking for, and I have so many designs in my head that I want to do with these ring bases that I can’t wait for the weekend to come around which will give me a bit more torch time.
What I really would like to get a feeling for: do you think there’s a market for interchangeable rings or is it a better idea (= more affordable for the buyer) if I make the cabochons and glue them on ring bases?
