Transfix Sprout Ring

The latest in an occasional series of rings called Transfix because they are all designed around one side piercing the other. The new one, Transfix Sprout, is very graceful and fluid. I've been told it's really a heart even though *I* think it looks like a leaf and sprout. The other two Transfix rings are below.
These rings are fun to create and I really enjoy the organic feel of the finished design. The new one is made of a little heavier gauge wire than the last couple and also stands much taller. I'm a tall person, I guess I like making tall rings! Each ring requires quite a bit of work in tapering the one end, annealing over and over and hammering and filing, polishing, etc. Although they are one-of-a-kind, it's not to say I won't be making others really similar to the ones that exist.
