What are you most proud of? How comfortable it actually is to wear, so it is possible.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Use a thicker wire for the actual ring part, as the gauge I had at hand was too thing (think it was 21g). I created two rings and soldered them together to form the shank of the ring, leaving the shoulder area unsoldered. I then wrapped 28g between the two rings and then to the top of the ring I added some fluorite chips then continued wrapping down the other side. It's quite a dainty ring because of the silver I had available, but still wearable.

I really like what you did with the fluorite chips. Very pretty!
