Day 22

I wanted to continue experimenting with the idea of a ring that hovers above the finger.  In undergrad, I was a ceramics major before I fell in love with metalsmithing/jewelry design.  I have a bunch of tiny thrown pots that I never glazed, so I decided to use one in a ring.  It is wrapped in copper wire and bounces and wiggles when being worn.  The weight is substantial, but not overwhelming, and by creating a double band the piece is quite stable.
