RAD 3/365


This was a lot of work for a very, very short time with the ring.

For today's ring I made a mold of a ring I'd made from 14kt gold. I filled the mold with water and froze it. Freezing destroyed the mold, so I only got one chance to take the photo before both the ring and the mold were lost.

I tried to get a shot of the ring on my finger, but it melted too quickly. Overall I'm pleased with this and I think I will try it again, but next time I'm going to make the ring out of ice rather than a simple ice version of an existing design.

  3. Just wanted to fill in that little gap in coverage.
    Back into work-is-kicking-my-ass oblivion.
    Thanks again for a post worth comment.
