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.

A friend and fellow artist, Kris, makes these beautiful bracelets that make the a lovely sound when rolling on your wrist. A neighbor of mine, Bobbi (who has one of these bracelets) wanted to buy a bracelet for her daughter, Mackenzie. While she was visiting, we had a pow-wow about how she wanted the links shaped. For kicks she suggested a heart link which got Kris and my brain going creating the heart and the design of the bracelet.
