Blue & Gold Ring


This ring was created in 2005: the center stone is an AAA gemstone quality dark blue Iolite, surrounded by heavily coiled gold-filled wire and vermeil (gold overlaid on silver) tiny beads.

The bezeled stone measures 5/8" long by 1/2" wide. The bezel is set using my spiraled wire-wrapping technique.
