Today has been a day for making silver rings. I participated in FestForAll and art and music festival which happens every year in my hometown of Baton Rouge, Louisiana this time of the year. Usually held the first weekend in April, this year the organizers decided to hold the festival the last weekend in March, in order to avoid a conflict with Easter.
I sold quite a few sterling silver stacking rings at the festival so today was one of the days I set aside for making more rings. Silver stacking rings are my favorites but I make lots of more complex ring designs as well. Did you know that the most popular or most common ring size for women is size 7? Turned out, when I got the festival I found that I had only two rings in that size. Disaster! Somehow, I made it through the festival! I will try hard never to let that happen again! I made lots & lots of silver rings in size 7 today and a few in other sizes as well. Next show: Festival International in Lafayette, Louisiana, last weekend in April! Already looking forward to it but I have to get my stock in shape!
