Stackers!

Been playing with the torch again..yep..the creme brulee one *wink* the one they told me at the bead store wouldn't get hot enough to melt fine gauge silver...the one that has burned the hair off my knuckles....I'm here to tell ya girls...don't waste your money on a fancy one...this one works great!

Today I got out the 12 gauge fine silver and wrapped it around my ring mandrel a few times...made my jump rings about what I thought would be a good ring size and torched away. After fusing them, I got out my handy dandy jewelers anvil and started hammering away. Now I have 6 awesome rings!I almost don't want to sell them. Guess I need to head back to monsterslayer for some fine silver. I think they came out pretty cool! What'cha think?



Made a beauty of a carnelian lariat too...starting to get some into wire wrapping. I'm not perfect yet, but alot better than my first attempt!


and some matching earrings..
