Are these gorgeous or what?
From AnneMaa Jewelry
Anne has very kindly agreed to GIVE AWAY one of these beautiful “wire wrapped” rings!
I have been a follower and admirer or Anne’s jewelry from long, long ago. Anne has been designing jewelry since 2005, after a stint as a fashion designer in Los Angeles. Anne says: “I approach design and merchandising the same way as a fashion designer as far as what pieces go in a collection and how a retail buyer/merchandiser would put together their select pieces for their store and customers.”
“I am very interested in ancient, primitive jewelry and their simple but modern quality. There were no extruded wires or sheets of metal but hand pounded lumpy and organic looking things. No perfect looking soldered joints but irregular and skewed angles and edges. I see jewelry as an object that changes and progresses with wear, like wood or marble wearing down where traffic is the highest over the years.”
Go to AnneMaaDesigns, click on “Rings” and look at the entire line of rings. It’s the “wire wrapped”rings that she is offering in this Giveaway. But while you’re there, look at her entire line of gorgeous jewelry.
Here it gets a little tricky…so pay attention! Below is a chart to determine your ring size.
things you’ll need:
- At least one finger
- Thin strip of paper
Cut a thin strip of paper.
Wrap it around the finger that you need sized. Make sure it is below the joint of your ringer and close to your knuckle.
Mark the spot where the paper meets and measure the distance with your ruler.
Size 4 is 1 and 13/16 inches
Size 5 is 1 and 15/16 inches
Size 6 is 2 and 1/16 inches
Size 7 is 2 and 1/8 inches
Size 8 is 2 and 1/4 inches
Size 9 is 2 and 5/16 inches

Size 11 is 2 and 9/16 inches
Size 12 is 2 and 5/8 inches
Size 13 is 2 and 3/4 inches
Size 14 is 2 and 7/8 inches
Since some of the rings on Anne’s site are only available in certain sizes, you will have to first know your size, then look at what is available in that size. All rings ARE resizable up to 1/4 size.
