Adjustable Rings in two styles and three metals for Metal Clay Designers - Coming Soon!!!

I was lucky to be next to Tonya Davidson at the Bead & Button show this year. She gave me an incredible idea. It is amazing when someone else looks at my work - they come up with amazing ideas.

The adjustable ring that I have been using for my coin rings with a simple modification can become a really awesome ring that artists who work with silver, bronze or copper metal clay can use as a base. The adjustability and durability of the ring makes is perfect for teachers and their classes, artists who sell to the public or individuals who want to make something special for themselves,

Two options are coming - a round that has a 20mm diameter and an oval that is 24 by 18 mm. Special tabs will grab and hold the clay when it is fired.

I have three photos below. One of the original ring and two of the new ring frames.

The rings will be added to the HandFast  inventory in August. Retail pricing is $36 for bronze, $60 for shibuichi (80% copper - 20%) and fine silver $100. Wholesale is available to the trade.

Email if you want to be contacted when they are available.
