ringing in the new year

o.k. so i'm a bit corny using a title like that -- but sometimes i can't help myself-- i just have to...

















i just finished two new rings for my etsy shop--  golden papillon ring and golden sun ring... one of them features a golden butterfly, and  the other a sun. each float above a starry milky way. i guess i'm paying more attention to the planets and stars these days, as my son just finished his project on jupiter a few weeks ago, i realized how i often forget to look up in the sky-- with my head always looking down at a table full of work. so it gives me a great feeling of joy to express some love for and to devote some attention to the distant beauty above.
