Here is my entry for this weeks EMPRC project. We were challenged to create a piece that reminds us of our favorite places. I picked Pisgah Forest in the mountains of North Carolina for my inspiration this week. There are 5 rough garnets cemented into the bezel of this piece around the 3 long tube set faceted Garnets. I found hundreds of tiny industrial grade garnets while we were camping in Pisgah this past summer. It was lots of fun.

I love this ring! The shape, and the garnets, and the place - wonderful and inspiring.
