This is a ring I made and then accidentally burnt up when trying to set the stone.  Sometimes, we don't know when to quit.  This was one of those cases.  I had all but set the piece of turquoise, when I noticed the beaded wire needed moved a smidge.  When I fired up the piece and got it hot enough to remelt the solder is when I burnt up the whole bezel.  I grieved over the loss of that almost ring:)  I didn't have the silver to replace it, so all I have left is the picture.  The bracelet is for sale on High Street.  It was requested to be plain, that is why it is plain.  Supposedly, copper is good for arthritis.
