Went to the orthopedic doctor today and guess what? They didn't set my arm yet. It's still quite swollen. As a matter of fact even my fingers are now swollen After I got home I had to cut my wedding ring in order to get it off. Thank heaven the shank isn't too thick. Probably the worst thing of all is it's going to take 12 or more weeks to totally heal.

Rats! Took a bad fall yesterday and broke my left wrist. So much for my jewelry making for a while. Thank heaven I'm right handed. Won't even be able to get it set until Monday. Our wonderful son, Mike came over and took me grocery shopping. Picked up extras of all the heavy and hard to handle items while I had the help. Now for the next couple of weeks it'll just be the small stuff. The biggest problem will be boredom since just about every thing I do takes two hands. By the time this is over I should be quite good at typing, opening bottles, making beds, etc., etc. with one hand..

This is a variation of the Pharoh's ring but instead of using a cabochon or cameo I used four 4mm and one 6mm Swarovski Crystals. The inspiration for this ring came from Dale "Cougar" Armstrong's new book Wirework. The metal is of course 14k Gold Fill.
