Spiral Rings

I took an ancient rings class in the hills of North Carolina. We learned the techniques that the master jewelers used thousands of years ago. This was one of the first rings ever designed. Each ring is unique in and of itself because no two come out the same, like finger prints and snow flakes. I have added a derivative by wrapping the ends of the fine silver wire on the same side versus wrapping the ends on either side. One of the galleries that I sell at has named these "Rose bud" rings because they resemble one.
