YOJ Week 9 -- Ethnic ring

As promised, I'm releasing two tutorials this month. And I am going to try to keep my promise of releasing at least one tutorial per month. Can I do it? We'll see...

This ring is a slightly modified version of the Ethnic Ring I created a while ago. The only major difference is the scalloped edge. Although pretty intricate, this tutorial is considered intermediate level, and it can be made very quickly after you get the hang of it. Amazingly, the trickiest part is the shank!
