Today someone stopped by and picked up a ring he'd commissioned. It's one of my Trinket Rings, and he asked whether I just bought ring blanks and added the settings or motifs or whatever to them.

Um, NO! I was a bit surprised by the question!

I make my ring shanks myself. I do buy a few things- like really small cabochon settings, and sometimes tube settings for faceted gems, and jump rings... but mostly, I start from mill goods and make things myself. IU love the control that gives me over the final results.

So, no- I do NOT buy ring blanks and just gussy them up a bit- not even for my affordable stuff, like the Trinket Rings. Handmade, baby!
