Get Stacked - Anna Margot Millton
When students leave this class, they will have a whole stack of rings; in fact, 5 new rings. Students will be creating a series of rings in a variety of designs. Some will have patterning on the band, some will have settings for stones, and one will have a silver flower (which students will make) attached. The rings are designed to complement each other and can be worn as a stack of 5 or single ring at a time or any combination.
