One of the designs that I most enjoy working with is mixed crystal rings. My studio is full of little crystal terminations of all types, in all sizes. These mixed crystal rings are my very best seller, because they are so completely customizable- your perfect specimen ring awaits you!
The ring will be built with the 4mm sterling silver band of your choice. It can be smooth, or can also be given a hammered finish. I can make it as a solid, soldered band or as a comfortably-finished adjustable band.
The bezel is the part of the ring that holds the crystals. You can choose the shape you would like your bezel to be, from teardrop shaped, to round, to squarish, or anything else you can imagine. The bezel will be built in fine silver. I can also build up an organic texture on the bezel, such as you see in the first ring. The bezel size for this listing is around 3/4"-1" in length. Please see this listing for large-bezel, wide-band rings: http://www.etsy.com/listing/65057820/custom-made-mixed-crystal-ring-in
I have included links to other pieces in my collection that have the same types of crystals- please click to have a look.

Your chosen crystals will be firmly embedded into the bezel using jeweler's epoxy.
Your final choice is the finish on the ring, which can be either a high shine or a gorgeous matte lustre finish.
