Our quest to find out what’s happening in YOUR studio continues! Last month we presented you all with another “What are You Working on Now?” contest, in which we invited readers to submit a picture or two and a short description of what’s on their workbench right now. We promised to pick a winner and drop a $10 credit into that person’s Rio account.
The submissions were terrific, and we were honored to get a glimpse inside your studios. However, the random number generator has spoken, and the winner of this month’s “What are You Working on Now?” contest is . . . Angelica Lee!
Take a look at Angelica’s work and read a little about her process:
I am working on a few sterling rings at the moment. One has a labradorite cabochon and one is just a band so far. Both are still in progress and need a lot of work, but I really love that stage since nothing is “set in stone” quite yet.
These rings came about because I really wanted to experiment with building pieces out of wire and explore repeating organic shapes. Both were constructed with pieces of wire that were soldered together to create the organic shapes I was after, in this case branching vines and pebbles or river/beach stones. I’m really liking the way they are turning out so far and I plan to play around a bit with more repeating organic shapes such as venation, cracked mud, neurons, coral, fungus, etc. made from wire.

Now it’s your turn to show us what you’re working on! Add a comment to this post with photos and descriptions of what’s on your bench right now and you might be spending an extra 10 bucks at Rio Grande this time next month. We’ll announce our next winner in mid-April.
