Experiments in Tension & Kinetic Energy Ring

Made on January 27, 2009

I like to fidget when I'm bored, so I absolutely love wearing jewelry that I can play with. The wood on this ring spins on its axis...no more boredom...hooray!

I also like a good challenge, and it was a bit of a puzzle to figure out how to to engineer this ring – it's held together only by tension. No soldering, no glue, just sterling silver and wood.
