Bending wire

aneis I've been working on designs for new rings. My coil rings continue to be popular and I can make them much faster now and without as much pain (calouses are your friends indeed) but I get fed up with doing the same thing all the time.

I love just bending wire randomly and seeing what comes out and I also had tons of sketches in my little sketch book so there was plenty to get me started.

I made all the rings on this picture in one morning, each taking about 15 to 20 minutes to make. They're all adjustable and have some hammered bits to make them more interesting. My favorite is the one on the right that makes me think of an octopus. I think that design may be the one I'll work on for further pieces. It's different from the rest because it's open on the side rather than at the back.
