The customer who ordered this was new to etsy and there were some hiccups with mail and convo initially at etsy, but once we got that settled out, I was glad that I coudl proceed to make her this beautiful ring which she wanted in sterling silver. THe labradorite beads were expensive as they are A+ grade, certified. But the end result was great, hope I don sound arrogant, but I am happy with it:) and hope this lovely buyer would be too:)
I needed more wire to wirewrap this US size 12 ring.
The price of silver just keeps gettig up, but most peopel cannot wear base metal. Silver tarnishes but if properly maintained by wiping with towel after use, it should keep well.
