The first treasure I unwrapped was a small tile that I later learned was a piece of pottery by Leslie Willett. Apparently when a piece isn't up to par she breaks it. Sara found out about this process and asked that she hold the pieces for her. This particular piece was then formed and sanded by Sara before she passed it along in the RAD pack. A treasure like this deserves a plan:
I was really drawn to the contrasting textures within the tile and I decided to develop that contrast by extending the texture onto the metals of the ring. The tile was so thick that I had to use sheet metal to make a bezel. When the first attempt failed I decided to go with a partial bezel.
