Can We Try "Ringing" in Summer? Snow - More Snow and Still Snowing - LOL....

Here it is Mid-April and we are continuing to have measurable snow.  Granted, it does not accumulate to "snowbank" measures, but it does cover the grass and hinder gardening activities.  So I have been busy creating in hopes it will pacify my longing for warmer weather and spring gardening.

I have been working on rings.  Recently, I was fortunate enough to purchase a large batch of vintage cabochons.  They were made in West Germany(?) by Alfred Weber.  I have tried to research these beautiful cabochons, but have had no success.  Anyone having information on them, please leave a post.

The colors in this ring are stunning.  It is predominantly this stunning blue color - but also changes color with the reflection of light, bringing out its rich reds, blues, yellows - colors of the rainbow.  The ring is set in an adjustable antiqued brass setting with ornate edging.  

This cabochon has beautiful multicolored starbursts.  It also changes color with the reflection of light.  It is set in an adjustable antiqued brass setting with an ornate edging.  

This cabochon boasts a beautiful "summer" flower.  The glass reflects the colors of the rainbow in warm pinks, oranges, yellows, and hints of blue.  The antiqued brass setting boldly embraces this lovely vintage cabochon. 

*  I am also going to include these two new rings, although they are not from the Alfred Weber collection, they are equally beautiful and freshly created.

Gorgeous filigree ring! - The focal stone is wrapped with a riveted filigree setting - riveted to an antiqued brass detailed filigree band. The stone is a vintage Aurora Borealis Montana Blue textured surface sugar bead cabochon, made in Japan. This ring is adjustable. Lots of sparkle

This ring has a bold crown of petals with slender petals pointing to the Emerald rhinestone in the center.  The contrasting silver and black enhance the Emerald center.  The band is wide and adjustable.
