Featured: Deer Antler Ring

This is a one of a kind ring for the ultimate outdoorsman. This ring design offers a contemporary and fashionable look while combining two very different materials (deer antler and fine silver).

The deer antler has been cross cut at the base of an antler. It was then sanded and lacquered. Lastly, the antler has been riveted onto a fine silver ring blank using a copper rivet.

I can create any size ring for you, just send me a contact me through my etsy site:

Deer Antler/Fine Silver Ring

This is my first ring where I riveted a cross cut section of deer antler. I used the base of the antler so there was plenty of antler for me to work with. It's a nice contemporary look for two very different materials!

Garnet in the Rough Brooch

This new brooch consists of a couple of new techniques that I have not tried before. First of all, I pressure set a garnet under a wooden setting. I also set up the brooch so that you can see the stone from both sides of the brooch. It also creates way for light to pass through the garnet in order to showcase the stone. This brooch measures 1 1/8" wide x 1 7/8" tall. It is also 1/4" thick.
