Ya gotta love it!
I absolutely adore this ring with its sky-blue turquoise and rich patina.
I bought it at Cowboy Andy and Cowgirl Susan's tent in the Bar W field at Warrenton this Spring show. Yes, it had a small problem but the price was small too.
I took my treasure home and pawed through my jewelry, looking for a necklace with beads that matched the color of the turquoise stones in the ring. Bless my Texas luck, I found one.
I stole one of the beads (restringing isn't that hard as long as you use new string), cut it in half, then reshaped it with a nail file to fit the dry socket.
Here's the ring and the shaped piece...
...and here the repaired ring. IT Guy glued it in with some of his remote control airplane makin' glue!
And here's my favorite ring on my favorite ring holder, just waitin' for the next time I get to wear it.
Thank you, Andy and Susan. And no, Andy, you can't buy my ring back for the same price I paid you for it!
