I am blessed to have many artists as friends. One of these is Max, a talented jeweler. He made this ring for me for my birthday this year, and I just love it. It’s actually something of an inside joke, because it’s shaped like a snake biting its tail. This is a reference to the great serpent rings worn by women known as Aes Sedai from Robert Jordan’s Wheel of Time series. (What? Why, yes, we are rather geeky. Why do you ask?) Obviously, I like this ring because of the literary reference. But it also goes well with a lot of different outfits, making it great for every-day wear.
