MaryJo Griffin's ring. The stone was locally mined in Newbury MA! Isn't it lovely? MaryJo is a very talented jewelry artist and friend who recently took the ringmaking class, and this is very much her style.
Carol Cavallaro is another very talented chain maille artist and friend who took the class. She created this lovely amazonite shield ring in class. Check out Carol's chain maille classes at the Riverwalk Bead Shop.
