Been experimenting with rings, I've done a lot of vintage cezch glass rings using wire wrapping, so I thought I'd play around with stacking and using textiles. I've got a load of sari silk ribbon which I'm totally bonkers about and in these rings I've folded the ribbon and added agate beads and other gemstones for detail.
I love the bright colours at the moment and sari ribbon is an amazing textile to work with.

Looking through all my blogs I've got listed on my profile I saw Kathy's Blog http://kathyvankleeck.blogspot.co.uk/
Very inspiring and her latest post includes her list of inspirational books. So I thought I'd share some of mine. Firstly is this hefty book full of the most amazing Chinese designs, almost all are in fab colour. You'll probably hit me but this is one of my charity store finds and cost an obscene £3.00.
Lastly on my bedside table is a copy of the late and brilliant Angela Carter's Book of Fairy Tales.
This is a collection of original folk tales and stories from around the world that inspired her own writing.
So let me know what has inspired you and use your local library - there's not many things in this world that are free.
