It was an accident that started several months ago. I was just going to make a simple stacking ring, but was having one hell of a time with getting the ends to meet. So I played around with it, determined to make ANY kind of ring at that point, and somehow the bezel ended up there. And it was way better than a plain, "normal" ring.
Setting the stone caused me further difficulty so I threw the thing aside and planned on taking it apart in the future.
I do that with jewelry.
Ultimately, I come back to it and usually, 99.9% of the time, I fix it. I just can't bear to scrap something I've spent time on when the composition is there and it has potential. I just have to wait (sometimes months, as you can see) until I'm not mad at the piece anymore and I'm ready for a new plan of attack.
