I have indeed picked up my 1mm hook. A friend is emigrating and, essentially, begged me for one of my rings. (Yes, you did, shameless!) I'm not sure how the brown colour scheme is going to work for her or her skin tone but the Stromatolites are some of my favourite stones.
The stone is a good oval but I've changed my mind since starting the band (here on the right). It should sit lengthwise on the fingers so I'm glad I didn't do too much last night. It'll be finished tomorrow and hopefully in the post to her before she leaves.
Follow me here for current news on finished work and works in progress. Feel free to get in touch!
