OOAK Ring by MissieRabdau

I met Missie at the Archwood Green Barns farmers Market in The Plains a couple of years ago when she purchased some of my items.  Amongst the items she has purchased was a package with pieces of felt I had made.   When I found out Missie also has a store on Etsy  http://www.etsy.com/shop/MissieRabdau?ref=seller_info  we really hit it off.  We cheer each other up when business is slow and we both feel like we want to stop this arts and crafts business!  But then again, we both know we couldn't survive if we couldn't make art.  It's in our blood and it's something you just can't stop doing.  Maybe for a day, or even two days but I know by then our fingers will be itching for wanting to make something and our brains would explode from all the ideas that have been building up in our heads and need to get out and worked on.  Missie makes and sells jewelry and as we all know there are a lot of people out there making jewelry so it's not easy trying to stand out but I must say I think Missie is on her way to stand out and make a statement.  Check out her latest design and description.

This ring is totally eco friendly. I have taken a piece of felted material that I purchased many years ago and set it in sterling silver and copper. The base is made from a piece of copper sheet metal that I have recycled. The bezel and band are made from sterling silver (.925). All silver was cut, sanded, soldered and burnished by me by hand. This ring is fun and funky and will be sure to attract some attention. The swirls in the felt are stunning...and I give credit to my friend, Chantal for making this beautiful piece of felt. You can find her shops listed below.

Copper (lead and nickel free)
Sterling Silver (.925)

All of my jewelry comes packaged for gift giving. If you would like a card included, please convo me and I will be happy to provide one for you. Please don't forget to let me know what you want the card to say. :)
