This was my first attempt at working with free form stones. (I shared it the other day). I really love this little ring, it is so light and easy to wear. I call it the naked ring (in my mind). He he, it reminds me of the dress Carrie (Sex/City) wore on her first date with Mr. Big. Yep, her naked dress. Anyway, it doesn't look at all like that, it just reminded me of it...but I digress, and am a little embarrassed that I know that not being a huge fan of that show. ANYWAY....
I wore this ring once I finished it. I just thought it was so different and fun. The more I wore it and studied it (I have to do that will all my new pieces) I realized something. This stone, though a freeform stone, was actually a tear drop shape! Do you see it?
I had not seen it when I first made it but after looking at it for a while on my finger I saw it..and now it bugged me. I thought I would just leave it as is, but the little OCD I have just wouldn't let it rest. So, I re-oriented it.
Doesn't it look much better? Now, when setting new freeform stones I am definitely going to be looking for some sort of shape within that form. Or it'll just bug the heck out of me!
