Wrapped Around His Finger

When my grandfather commissioned his custom Snake Ring, he suggested I borrow a gold Dragon Ring with Jade for inspiration.

I began researching the anatomy and physiology of snakes...

...and, after sketching a few design ideas, I sat down at my bench with a block of modeling wax and carving tools.

A few hours later, the wax ring was complete and ready for casting.

I cast the Snake Ring in 18kt yellow gold and set Ruby eyes. I'm pleased with the result ~ hope he likes it too!
