YOJ Week 7 - Hippie ring

This ring was actually made before the amethyst ring posted in Week 6, but I just got things mix-up a little and forgot to post it. I like the lattice-work, but it took a long time to make. I think I should have made it with gold-filled wire to match the rutilation inside the crystal. I also think the ring is too big for my small hands... I've been wearing it, but I look like a decadent hippie gone bad with it, LOL.

Sterling silver, rutliated quartz cabochon.
