Sometimes introducing a new jewelry design is scary: I don’t know what others will think of it. Sometimes, others really don’t think much of a particular design. But when I hit on something special, it’s a great feeling.
That’s how I feel about this hammered copper rope ring. It’s made from several strands of wire that I twist together and hammer out into a rope pattern. Since introducing it in late November, it’s become my best seller, as in I’ve sold more of this ring than any other design since I started making jewelry. A beautiful thing, too, is that some customers have ordered it in a set of “his” and “her” bands. That is precious to me.
On my own, I probably would not have made this ring. It was, instead, inspired by a custom order I filled for a twisted copper bracelet. The ring seemed like a natural extension of that design, and my customers have agreed.
I love that inspiration comes not only from my own surroundings and experiences.
It also comes from…you.
And for that I say “thanks.” 🙂
