The Geometric's Challenge

Drum roll please! Our geometric's challenge is here! We've amazing entries this time from five very talented MCHs. You can see from their submissions that they're eager to take their metal clay skills to the next level. Our technique requirement this time is "movement." Here they're:

Umbrella Ring Copper Silver Spinner Wrap from YorkAvenueStudio

Adorable little umbrella ring that wraps around your finger. I make the umbrella top with fine silver (.999) and the design is carved by hand. The ring band is the umbrella handle that wraps as an adjustable ring made from heavy copper wire. The Umbrella spins, perfect for those who like to fidget with their fingers, fun!

Teardrop Unusual Unique Triangle Silver Ring from Somethingxtraspecial

This beautiful and unusual shaped tear drop ring is perfect for the fiddler! A different design (one embossed, one etched) on each side of the disc, giving the wearer the option of two rings in one!

Drifting Fine Silver Pendant from Jewelflyt

...drift away...across a dreamy sky...

This handcrafted pendant is made from precious metal clay - fine silver. Crafted in the shape of a hot air balloon, 'drifting' is a lovely, whimsical pendant.

Silver Spinner Necklace II from MyBrownWren

This is a spinner necklace. It has four wings that are perpendicular to the central core, which is an extruded square tube. The central core and the wings are all hand carved, as well as the matching bottom bead. This piece hangs from a 24" oxidized sterling silver chain.

Silver Spinner Chocolate Pearl Pendant from Envydesignsjewelry

A fun paisley patterned domed open circle pendant with a spinner disc affixed to the front with a chocolate pearl. Handmade from recycled fine silver (.999). The disc on the bottom of the pendant is set with a yellow sapphire, and yes it spins!
