Poster Sketch: Very Cherry Ring

Bowl of Cherries Ring by The Sage's Cupboard
Ring # 18 - Bowl of Cherries

I must confess something. I am running out of ring ideas.

I’ve done some experimenting of the past 18 days, looking for new design styles to add to my ring beading repertoire. I enjoyed making all of them, but I feel strangely attached to the styles I had made my own months ago. I have already decided to stick with what works, but I’m having a hard time letting go of the idea of making something completely new every day.

Today’s ring was a comfort to create. Using my favorite herringbone band style, I created a bowl of cheerful cherries. When I was making this piece, I was imagining a blue glass bowl, sitting in a square of sunlight on a vintage-yellow countertop. The bowl was full of cherries.

This inspiration couldn’t have come at a better time. With the end of the week finally here, and time for another Poster Sketch collection, I was very excited to create a treasury to match this fruity ring. While putting this group together, I noticed that I also have a very repetitive curating style: 3 parts jewelry + 1 part art. Well, it works for me!
