Flower Garden Ring & Charm

I had another play with silver clay yesterday. I only intended making the ring, but then I thought I'd see if I could make a matching charm.

The ring is based on a project in "Beads and Beyond". I'm quite pleased with it, and it fits perfectly, which is a bonus after all the effort! I've hung the charm from the Byzantine maille bracelet that I wear almost every day. It seems quite at home there, and I shall definitely be making more. In fact, it was with charms in mind that I decided to try silver clay in the first place. The rings have just been a diversion - but a nice one.

I bought 20g of clay, and I've managed to make two rings, one 20mm charm, one 13mm charm and I still have about 7g left! It goes a lot farther than you think it will.

Tomorrow I'm hoping to have a beadmaking session, and then it will be fun combining my beads and silver clay into something pretty.

Well it's a gorgeous day outside so I think I shall take my book outside and make the most of it! I hope your day is sunshiney too.
