Jewelry sale and new(ish) work

I apologize for it being so long since my last post! The Spring semester started up a couple of weeks ago, and it has been very busy! I have finally gotten around to photographing these rings that I finished in December. They are puzzle rings, and they fit together. The idea behind them is that they connect the people wearing them, indicating that all people in the world are fundamentally the same, and are connected in some way. I may eventually expand on this idea and make many more rings that fit together. I want it show a more global unity. Any ideas?

Also, I wanted to announce that the ASU Metals Club with be having a jewelry sale, just in time for Valentine's Day! It will be on ASU Tempe campus in front of the Art Building February 9 and 10 from 10:00 to 4:00 both days. The Metals Club has also started an etsy website that sells jewelry made by students in the club. 20% of sales go to the club to bring in artists so that students can learn new techniques. Here is a link to the website:

Examples of work that will be at the Jewelry Sale and/or on the etsy website:
