I made a ring!

I always get excited when I learn something new. Thanks to my friend Amy Katz, I learned tubular peyote and made an adorable ring!

Amy, Sherry Serafini, and Paulette Baron have teamed up to work on a very exciting book project that I'll be editing. To say I'm inspired by their work is the understatement of the year. I am so lucky to work with artists like them! I'll be blogging more about their book a little later. It's still in the early stages.
So at Christmas, I was delighted (and a little overwhelmed) to open a package from these three inspiring ladies and discover that they each had sent me a project kit from their collection.
Amy's directions were so easy to follow, and everything in the kit was labeled. She even included needles! Here's the first stage of the ring, when it was just peyote...
And here's the finished ring after embellishing:

Next up is Sherry's earring project, and then I think I'll be skilled enough to try Paulette's bracelet. Stay tuned.


  1. I am truly amazed - you made your ring with only written directions?? It is beautiful. I love it in gold!
