Just a Friendly Nursing Reminder Ring

When I was in Middle School my family and I were visiting my Aunt and Uncle in California.  My Aunt was feeding her sweet baby girl and she would do an unusual thing. She would switch her ring after she was done breastfeeding and put the ring on the side she just finished breastfeeding on. When her baby was ready to eat again, she starting breastfeeding her baby on the side that had the ring on it.

Classic Jewelry – Like Grace Kelly and Cary Grant

These past few weeks have been weeks full of jewelry, and I have enjoyed it immensely.

When my mom came to visit me she was able to bring jewelry to me to give to my wonderful Canadian friends who have helped me so much.

What surprised me the most is what they chose.  They did not choose my dads sculptural earrings like this:

How to Make a Double Knot Ring

A double knot ring requires a lot of strength in your hand and arm.  All of the brothers and sisters know how to make this ring…but we do not fight over who gets to do it, because it takes a lot out of you!  I remember making these for what seemed like all day, and got a cold the next day. I was moved onto another piece of jewelry after that!  My mom usually makes the knot rings, but since blessed Caitie came into the shop, she is the new designated Knot maker, and we all could not be more thrilled!

How to make a Double Knot Ring

Last week my mom demonstrated how to do a Knot ring.  Because of this I felt it appropriate to introduce the DOUBLE KNOT RING.  I have seen the knot ring around, but rarely do I see the Double Knot Ring.  This is a challenging design to make, just because now you have to tie a knot in two pieces of metal that does not want to be bent.  My mom is the main knot ring maker in the family because she is patient and  not afraid to take on the tough jobs.  Isn’t that what a mom is all about?

My mom is amazing and is the main reason why we were able to make jewelry.  Her main job was to set us up with all the jewelry equipment and to be our motivator and cheerleader.  In fact now that I think about it, she had the hardest job in the shop because she needed to motivate six kids to work!
