So the question was asked: "Did she like them?" as a response to my Whatever post.
I thought I'd let you see for yourselves...
She got very excited over a book and a CD, but she's been showing the rings to her friends and guarding them in her room...A good reaction I guess.
The look on her face when she opened the box and saw I'd made something new was well worth all the dramas I had making the ring. Her smile was priceless and that's all the fanfare I needed. I'm really pleased I made the effort!
