I recently posted a new tutorial Mens Cab Ring. It has since been pulled from publication on all my sites. It was reported to me, that someone I have respected for a long time felt my design looked to close to theirs. While the text and images and construction is my own, in deference to this person I have removed the tutorial from sale. I felt I developed improved techniques for constructing a ring of this type. The text that I wrote and the pictures I took reflected these improvements in techniques.
While I realize this is a disappointment to some of you, I felt this was the correct thing to do. I may apply these same improved techniques to another project, and will certainly let everyone know when that happens. I appreciate your inquiries, and support.

Sometimes it pays to stay up til 4:30 in the morning .
This is the ring from my tutorial Lesson in Patience Prong Ring Tutorial – dressed up with a variation of Perri’s (Shaktipaj) Periwinkle Bead Cap Tutorial .
The design hit me after seeing an antique dinner ring in a nearby antique mall – (I will try to get a picture of it to post). I used 28 and 30g GF wire, and 2mm and 4mm Swarovski Crystals.
Still playing with the combination of Perri’s Periwinkle and my Lesson tutorials. ~~In this pendant – the center stone is an 8mm faceted Olive Peridot CZ with 2mm and 4mm Swarovski crystals set in 14K GF wire.
