Trailing bud ring

New on my bench is this my "Trailing flower bud ring"......thanks to a good chat and some inspiration at the bench.

 
 
 I had a lovely chat to a family at the City hall BrisStyle market about my work and one of the comments is that they loved the idea of some of the trailing flowers but would love to see a more restrained trails across the hand, with a few flower details.







This is the result and I'm sure it will be one of many, it fits comfortable on the hand with enough detail to still entice people to look. There's a big difference between my jewellery and commercially made jewellery. I love to add variation in thicknesses variation even in a range, and highlight the hand forged elements and add detail that makes it obviously handmade and not cast. When I simplify my designs I walk that fine line but I think that I have still retained a "Michelle Pujol-ness" to this ring.

It will be interesting to see the following progressions of this ring.
