Whole Jewelry collection from One Ring Design

A few years ago I was sitting listlessly in my handmade jewelry workshop, thinking what should I do next. I suddenly had an idea for a ring.I followed my imagination and  made this jewelry ring by carving various shapes on a round piece of wax to the shape of a ring. After that  I cast it in silver to a very small number of rings and offered it to my customers:

As I really liked  the outcome of this procedure, I began to play with one of the cast copies of this carved ring and started a whole jewelry collection, by sawing it and hammering it gently to a flat shape, and then worked on  parts of it by hammering , bending , slicing,doming.

The latest experiment of mine is this small pair of gold plated sterling silver stud earrings to which I added a few dangling Feshwater pearls:

I love these because they are rather delicate and while they could be for casual wear they have a certain of dainty elegance

Holiday gift price:

The flattened design, was hammered to a flat shape, rounded at the edges with  loops on the top to which I added ear posts. The whole pair is gold plated. It has an effect of a tribal design,  but has an elegance of its own.
Holiday gift:

The I sawed off one of the angles of the ring and made a nother small ring with a small spiral design. I added a few narrow bands to create a cute casual sterling silver stacking ring collection:

Holiday gift:

These casual handcrafted artisan design hoops, are another result of my playing with this ring. I sawed four spiral shapes from the rings, then soldered them on both sides of a round sawed piece of  flat silver, then  created the hoops. By doing so the hoops look the same from each angle you look at them. They have a tribal  unique look.

Holiday gift:

I took two hammered flat rings and bended them into loops, then colored them with purple cole enamel. I added posts to them and here you have a pair of sterling silver hoop studs:

In my shop:

I love spirals. One can play endlessly with them. Here is a pair of goldplated silver studs which I hammered to small dome shapes and goldplated:
Holiday gift:

And last but not least :

Small delicate sterling silver studs, made with small spirals. A pair of cute little decorations for the ears. These would make a very nice gift for her, also for a young girl.

Holiday gift:

Now you may say: "OK dear, what about a necklace, a bracelet a pendant???? Only rings and earrings"??
Well - be patient my friends, they are all on their way to my shop. We are all still young and have a whole lot of time waiting for us! (God willing! hopefully!)

Wow, your creations are just fantastic. I adore the gold plate over sterling earrings with the sweet pearl dangles and the price is amazing ... far below market value for handcrafted earrings of this caliber.
