Give Me A Ring

I'm not a football kinda girl, never have been, never will be. My husband, on the other hand, is all about college football! I was informed earlier in the week that we would be staying home tonight to watch the UF vs LSU game. I was told not to make any plans...OK!
As the game came on TV, I ventured off to my studio with the intentions of making a new funky ring. I recently purchased Susan Lenart Kazmer's book: "Making Connections" and found my inspiration for this ring.
I used copper sheet for the base of the ring and added texture using a Fretz hammer. Then I dressed up the base by adding various rivets. Next, I added some vintage watch parts (the bottom piece spins), a faceted smokey quartz bead and viola! cool funky ring appeared before my eyes. I'll take ring making over football any day of the week!
