Anniversary Gift...

Our parents celebrated their 40th wedding Anniversary this month. So I made something special for my mom. It is an uphill battle convincing folks of the unconventional path I am on..especially with my work and education background, in Kerala I seem to be explaining myself to every second person...

It has now reached the stage where I just exclaim that this is what I want to do..and let their remarks go unheeded.. Anyway, this creation seems to have brought some good comments from certain unexpected quarters !! As always I created something that please me ..and thought that the wearer would enjoy...


I made this ring for my mom for my parents' anniversary . It is made from a 16 gauge copper wire. The 4 plain coils were secured with a twist knot. Two ends were then coiled into swirls and secured the way I wanted them. I made one coil bigger than the other and then positioned the coils. The whole ring was then lightly hammered to harden it and to secure the coils in position.

It is a simple design..and mom seemed to like it...
