Today’s Ring a Day creation was a bit of a surprise - a custom request based on # 5, Licorice Bubblegum Ripple. The order was for an all black version, so we juggled a few possible ideas, and came up with a gunmetal on black pattern.
The almost metallic shine of the gunmetal seed beads makes a pretty, subtle contrast to the opaque black. The pattern is visible, but not stark. The best thing about the extra tall ring design is that there’s plenty of room for a pattern. Even a simple set of stripes needs space to stretch out and make a scene.
Custom orders are one of my favorite things about making jewelry. Our fans and customers often come up with the very best ideas!
