Ring Ring Ring

Oh wow we have not had a full Internet coverage for a week and a half after lightning struck a tree on our block knocking out the bore(water supply to the house...no town water here) and the phone line/Internet access to our computer. The bore was fixed last Monday and Telstra finaly came and fixed the phone line an hour ago yeah so here I am. Its now week five post rotator cuff surgery on my left shoulder. Its still painful with use/on movement but defiantly not as bad as a few weeks ago...slow steps indeed *sigh*. I see the specialist next Monday and am hopping I am allowed to drive and be able to move the arm more after that. I've so missed doing my art. I gave in a few days ago and made some simple resin filled rings...nothing too strenuous just some punched out vintage images and vintage findings in bezel rings that I got from Retrocafeart and then ice resin filled them. Here they are...

This copper one has a tiny vintage plastic toy (also from Retrocafeart) over vintage paper in it...worn boobs and all.

 This is one of my favs. Its silver toned and has an old kinetic watch face with a vintage glass dolls eye from Retrocafeart.

 A small silver toned square one with a tin type photo.

 A larger rectangular ring with Vintage papers, old tin type photo and a brass pen nib.

 Another copper ring with a cs watch face, TH spinner and metal rose charm.

 I like this one too LOL...has cs watch face, vintage male image and an old fuse embedded in the resin.

I also made some bracelets that I shall load up later. Pre surgery I had prepared and cut lots of brass and nickel/silver metal ready to make cuffs, necklaces and etched metal houses. On Sunday I got some etching done and thought I had been very kind to my left arm but woke up Monday with my arm quite sore again just from holding the metal to clean it after finishing the etching process. So actually making the etched pieces will have to wait a bit again...slow arty steps indeed :o).

Glad to hear your recovery is making progress - even if the goings are slow. Love the whimsical rings and hope your shoulder improves more quickly now.

Love love love what you did with the ring blanks!!! Let me know if I can share them! P.S. I'm finally getting around to posting "the Engineer" (which is the main reason I stopped by). Your work is awesome! xoxo
