From something like this

To something like this

Then modified by me into a shape like this

In preparation to be placed into a fitting like this

Which after I set the glass looks like this

And after a long overnight spent polishing in the tumbler, finally, turns into this

Custom ordered sea glass ring. For a lovely girl who is presenting it as a gift to her mother on her wedding day. It was joy to work with you, I wish you many many years of love, life and happiness together. Congratulations, Heather!

Linking up to the Turquoise Tuesday Party over at The Single Nester!

Very nice job..the progression of pictures tell a wonderful story. The new owner will be totally blessed. The ring is beautiful, fit for a mermaid.

Wow! Gorgeous work. I love the beach glass ring you created. My head is spinning now. I might just have to find a perfect piece in my stash and look into having something like this done one day. I'll bookmark you.

Thank you for linking this lovely ring to my Turquoise Tuesday Party! I have never found sea glass near my home. Never. I buy "sea glass" from stores. This makes me sad.
