PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
It is a handicraft ring. First step was to find a way to connect petals with having movement on the dome . So, she made holes on dome for petals and put all petals in the hole. she melted inside part of petals in order to make balls. Since the balls and petals are bigger than the holes on dome, the petals can move upside and down(can't falling out). After finished making the flower part, she connected the bottom of flower and the ring with wire so that the the bottom part of flower can spin on the ring. Final step was connecting the flower part on the bottom part with bezel setting and set diamond on the pistil.
