We stil have a few things to iron out. If you see any bugs, issues or have any concerns, let us know here in this discussion.
Thankyou! It is surprising to me too...these rings kind of work together. The thumb ring is more of a spiral ring with yellow and white gold, and the little gold snake I picked up at a vintage jewelry store...I added the pearl. It reminded me of a lovely gold snake midi ring which had a pearl dangling from it, which I lent to my mother and then she lost it. Ugh! So I kind of replaced it but the first one was more beautiful.That is fabulous Bluegemz!!!! The fact that you have enough pieces to pull it off is just wow!
I remeasured again...6.5- to maybe 7...Impossible to be exact though because I can’t tell how muchOooh thanks! No wonder it has such a lovely high dome!
@Bluegemz, I love these snake rings!
Thank you, @Stracci! Absolutely... I love the animal spirit which they represent. I was hiking and my son caught a green snake. It was so beautiful, with such a quiet dignity about it. It did not try to bite, just wrapped around his hand. Of course he let it go. But, the feeling of that snake made a lasting impression. When it left, the way it moved was mesmerizing, just a ribbon of green flashing into the underbrush, vanishing as quickly as it came. It carried with it the sentiment of enchantment into a world unknown.
BTW, my sister always called me Medusa because I had very long hair in my teens and 20s!
I completely get it and totally agree with you. Jewelry has to have something special about it. I’m not excited by only pretty, blingy, mainstream, mass produced or popular, but mix somethings in occasionally. I’m influenced by visions, meanings and simple elegance expressed in jewelry. At the same time, I’m very aware and inspired by the life of stones in and of themselves.@Bluegemz, I feel very emotional about alot of my jewelry, as I'm sure you do as well.
Most of what I have has meaning connected.
I have many pieces that my Dad bought for me when I was younger. I recently told him that I still have these things and he was surprised.
I have many pieces that were gifts, and they all have special sentiment about the giver.
But the pieces that I chose for myself are more involved.
Sapphire, sapphire, what can I say? They are my birthstone, and I have ways been drawn to them.
Jade is also a magnet for me. I have a lot, and probably none if it is of high quality. But I still love it anyway.
Vintage pieces, unusual stones, and anything handmade resonates with me. I always need to know provenance, if possible.
I never buy jewelry because it's "pretty".
There must be something special about a piece before I am interested.
I saw this wonderful ring with a mix between snakes and navette , which I thought wonderful, and brought me back to the deep appreciation which I have for this shape. They are so fantastically mysterious, lengthen fingers and are inherently a little witchy. A great form for sentimentality expressed. I think every lady needs one!
Awe, he’s adorable!! Love love love him. Great name for your ring too.I’m loving all the snake inspiration!
Here’s my snake bracelet...
Hehe. His name is Wrigley and he’s a baby python.
Oh and I named the ring Alan
OMG, I love that miniature portrait ring!
