Unbroken Circle Ring

The tiniest hydrangea bloom marries two sides of an unbroken jacaranda band...

completes and links,
heals and unites.

These are the fruits of my geographic placement,
the finest botanicals that San Jose offers up to be pressed
and made into semiprecious magic.

This is a dainty ring whose diminutive size am not accustomed to making
but oh how good it felt to scale down,
to bend close to the fire and lose my brain in the details.

Said brain is a whirlwind of late
There is nothing like soulful work to break the chatter
into navigable bits.

In this most delicate of designs a size 7.25 finger will fit.

Heading over to the Metal Shop to tuck it in soon!
