I am still in my handmade silver flower making mood.

Lately I get these spontaneous ideas. I guess that’s because the weather is changing and has a kind of influence on my creativity… as soon as I have an idea, I decide not to wait, no matter whatever I am occupied with that day, and I go right away to my studio and do it. I believe that when I create my items spontaneousely, it can be felt by other people too. The items are made with more enthusiasm, and people can sense this.

As it is still September, I chose a freeform Pink Sapphire with a rosecut surface and set in a new sculptured flower ring.

Here’s how I did it: I hammered a piece of 0.7mm thick sterling silver to the shape of a sculpted flower by using the repoussee technique.As the rims are somewhat sharp, and I like to create rings which would not harm the skin of whoever wears it, I soldered a 0.6mm thick backing to it. On the back I soldered one of my ready made sterling silver bands. ( I keep a stock of various sized sterling silver bands which I designed and handcrafted in advance, in order to have them handy whenever I wish to create a ring) and finally I soldered a bezel on top of the flower. As the upper part of the flower is wavy, I made a special sterling base for the bezel and soldered it only to the four higher spots of the flower. I oxidized the surface of the flower, polished it a bit, and finally set the stone.
