Unfurl and show your inner beauty

You may recall a few weeks ago that I showed you a new ring I had made of a flower unfurling.

At the time, I felt I wanted some color on the inside of the bud so the title "unfurl and show your inner beauty" made more sense with the color representing your inner beauty.  I tried a few techniques to try and add bright color but they weren't very successful,  so I decided to put 22K gold on the inner of the petals - suggestive of precious....

I like the contrast - not a bright color as I had originally thought - but I think this works better.

I  seem to be enjoying rings at the moment even though I've always thought making rings wasn't terribly good business wise because of people wanting different sizes...but I guess as long as I make them to fit one of my fingers, even if they don't sell, I'll enjoy them!

What do you think?  Do you like the gold?

I think it's delightful -- like all of your work. But this is different!
