nose rings

I've been meaning to make some nose rings for awhile now. I wouldn't mind having a real nose ring, but I don't think my work would like that very much, and I don't feel inclined to wear a bandage over my nose every day to cover it. These turned out pretty good for a spur-of-the-moment, throw-something-together piece. I used some really small scrap silver wire and melted it into the ball, then I took longer scrap pieces of wire and folded that into half round rings to solder onto the silver beads. The wires vary in length from 1.5cm/2cm. The silver beads vary in size. They are all in the tumbler now getting shiny and pretty!
