So… my friend, who’s a musician, wanted me to make him a ring. With my friend in mind, a new technique I wanted to try, and just acquired dino bone, this is what happened. I was going to include his name on the inside of the band, and something told me he wasn’t going to end up with this ring anyhow, so i skipped that part. He loved the ring, but, as my intuition had already told me, the ring wasn’t meant for him. He plays the saxophone, and wanted to be able to wear the ring all the time. With the profile of this ring, it would have interfered with his music playing abilities, and so we had to go back to the drawing board. I love this ring. The textured concave detail on the sides, the dino bone detail, and design of the angles really makes it unique and definitely calls to a certain person. Bold in style, this unisex ring is waiting for the right, brave wearer.
