A Ring a Day - Twenty-seven

Indigo Starfish Ring by The Sage's Cupboard
Ring # 27 - Indigo

I am so very pleased to announce that Rings # 17 and 22 have both found new homes through the Help the Gulf Coast Etsy shop. So far, the shop has raised $5500 for relief efforts in the Gulf. It’s a great feeling, being able to assist in even the smallest way, especially when we’re too far away to put on some overalls and rescue animals in person.

Today’s ring was supposed to be a donation, but I made a small miscalculation and ended up with a size 7 band instead of size 9. Although it’s not terribly tiny, I think an average size would be more likely to sell, and that’s what it’s all about. I can put an Oops in my own shop and wait to see if it sells. Apart from size, the ring turned out great.

I hope to have a replacement for this ring very soon, and I will continue to do whatever I can for such an important cause! If you haven’t stopped by Help the Gulf Coast in awhile, there are many wonderful new donations from talented Etsy artists. Every little bit counts!
