Vitrail Medium Trillion ‘Marcella’ Ring

I played around with these cute 8mm vintage trillion “sew-ons” a couple of weeks ago – the photos are quick kinda crappy phone pics, but you get the idea. They make a sweet ring, even if they are a bit fiddly to work with. They are on my play list for today for another ring and maybe some earrings too 😀


Where’s The Mens Cab Ring Tutorial

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.

Lesson in Patience Dressed Up for Dinner at Perri’s

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.

My 3rd Tutorial – YEA :)

Fancy Band is an advanced level project, although the instructions are very clear and thorough, and I’ve had many, many beginner to intermediate students successfully complete this project. It is 15 pages, with 43 clear crisp photos, and a total file size of 963KB.

This tutorial teaches you step by step, the techniques used to create this design, some of which were inspired by Dianne Karg Baron and Mr Jorgen Greftegraff. It is wonderful design to create an elegant lasting piece of jewelry.

I do suggest you have at least the basic skills and familiarity with wire wrapping before attempting this ring. If you’d like to build your skill set first, please see my other listings for beginner and intermediate level tutorials.
Please visit My Shop for this and other tutorials, and for complete kits that are also available for this –
