My beautiful ring just arrived from Australia today!!!
I am so excited! (All the explanation marks should testify to that.)
I purchased this ring from a friend of mine, Lorraine Allan, who creates beautiful handmade jewelry. I’ve been trying to promote her like crazy on Facebook, so maybe you’ve seen me mention her there. I first “met” her when I was making beaded jewelry several years ago. (I have no idea how I found her in Australia…some internet search…I just don’t remember.) Gorgeous glass beads! Well now she’s expanded her interests to metal work. And let me tell ya, she can work that metal!
She lives near Adelaide, Australia. And she LOVES what she does. You can see more of her artistic jewelry on her website, Handmade by Lorraine. Shipping is quite reasonable. For this ring, it was only $$6.50. I’ve included a couple images from her website for you to see. Click on the image to be taken to that item. You can also find her on Facebook.
(We also had the fun of meeting Lorraine and her husband Pete when we went to Australia a few years ago.)
ps-Can you guess what the pink background is on my ring photo? I have a fitness ball in my office that I sit on sometimes. And it just happened to be sitting near a window, and voila! Instant backdrop.
