This is just a concept that I had - ring with just a single swirl incorporated in it. This design definitely still needs some work before I would consider listing it in my online shop.

Because I was just playing arround with some ideas, I used copper because it's so much less expensive than silver. Somehow, swirls don't seem to want to behave for me as well in this metal. It's a bit softer than silver, so it wants to bend more quickly and tends to create more angles.

I might play around with this concept a little more, or I might not. Either way, this is the reason why this Design A Day challenge is a great thing for me. It gives me incentive and motivation to create new designs. (Whether or not they really work out well!)

    Funny thing about a design/a day challenge is that we are really determined to keep up. Congrats on all of your beautiful pieces. I tried the same for the month of February (not withing a group, just myself) and it kept me on my toes. I didn't follow through every day though.

    I love the copper ring, I love that the swirls are not perfect. Are they hammered? Its a really nice ring.

    I like this one just as it is-- the color, the extra angles... it's beautiful.
