I had originally planned for this silver ring to have a Green Amber stone set in it, but while I was waiting for the ring to pickle after soldering the bezel on, the stone disappeared. Hopefully when/if I get round to tidying up I might find it again in some far flung corner! Luckily I had this Blue Onyx stone that fitted in, its a gorgeous shade of blue and I think works better, reminds me of the sky and trees. Ah trees because I have cut out two Oak leaves and soldered them either side of the setting.

Things to look forward to this summer :0)
Hasfest 2012 18th, 19th and 20th May and of course Chesterfield/Derbyshire Pagans Lammas Camp (which promises to be even bigger and better) 2nd - 5th August. Tickets on sale for camp at Imbolc from Chesterfield Pagans site or at any of the Derbyshire moots, Hasfest still free:0)
Lots of fun, fire, dancing, drumming, meeting folks, learning/workshops and shopping (must get some things made to sell so I can buy things;0)
For info on last years happenings see here: http://chesterfieldpagans.org/2011/05/25/photos-of-hasfest-2011/, http://chesterfieldpagans.org/events/

I really like this ring and might make some more similar I think. It has a central leaf (yeah ok it looks a bit like a heart) with tendrils wrapped around the ring and a thorn sticking up (nice and rounded though, doesn't prick). I aged it to give it more definition.

All bare again here! Left it till 12th night as it always seems so dull when all the pretty twinkly shiney things have been put in their boxes again for another year, though usually we leave one or two things out for a bit of sparkle:0) Might be a making pretty things to hang around the house this weekend for me and at least the youngest, hard to motivate the oldest one now!
