glitter and gold

My sister unearthed these the other day and it dawned on me that they have never been featured - even though they were the last thing I did in my Metals class. In case you were wondering, these little sweets are not actually made out of gold. I simply cannot afford gold. Nor am I experienced enough to work with it comfortably. Good thing brass is a gold color so the title it isn't a total lie. But let's be real here, glitter and brass just doesn't have that catchy snag to it so I certainly couldn't use that as the title ;)

But anyways, these were made because I had a box full of metal scraps that needed to be used and my soldering-small-bits skills needed further honing. I'm happy with the way they turned out. They are FAR from perfect but I like their look and I will be wearing them until I can stand a green finger no longer. 

Isn't that ant the greatest!?


  1. Very nice Shakti! Are you going to take more metal work classes? You seem to really have a knack for it.

  2. Those rings are really pretty! You are quite talented. I always wanted to take a metals or jewelry class while I was at school but never had the chance. Also - awesome nail polish :] And ants typically creep me out but he looks so nice in the photo.

  3. Cool rings, great job. So you like ants and not spiders?

    1. hahaha I guess. Ants aren't creepy lurkers like spiders. But my general rule for bugs is no more than six legs please.

  4. You MADE those rings!?!? How do I get my hands on one (or five) of them??! Can I bribe you for one?
