Songlines Castle Ring




I love my Songlines Ring and wear it quite a lot. The only problem is that the ring band is slightly too wide for my finger. I decided to do something about it. I held it in my hand yesterday and they started to grow on me and evolved into something of its own.
Within minutes I started to cut out 3 strips of silver from the rims and soldered them onto the open side of the ring........and there you go, looks just like a castle.

Mr. Silvermonk said Castle Ring sounds a bit too Colonial.

I thought, Wow, from Songline to Castle, that sounds very much like the Australian ( natural/cultural) landscape........




Honestly, I just really like the sculptural feel of the newly reincarnated ring.

I feel blessed!!
