Do Over: Silver Cameo Ring

As you know, I love to buy bags of broken jewellery at the thrift shops. They are an inexpensive way to get findings for making your own jewellery or crafts, it’s good to recycle and every now and then you get some amazing unexpected treasure. Last Friday, on my way to see my friend Heidi Mole’s stand up show, I stopped by the Salvation Army on Parliament and purchased such a surprise bag. In it was a sterling silver ring which had, alas, lost it’s centre stone. I looked through my collection of bits and pieces when I came across a teeny hand-carved shell cameo. Because of the shape, it would only fit in the mount horizontally, but I thought, what the heck and popped it in anyway. I think it’s kinda cool.
