I also use Sundays to come up with creative new ideas. I know it's technically still working but somehow those relaxing Sunday mornings always get my creative mind unleashed. It's tough for me during the week to actually explore new design. Most days I am just trying to finish up as many rings as I can and keep the ball rolling on all these various stages all orders are in. I do get new ideas during the week but can't actually try them out due to time constrains. I sometimes manage to carve something up in wax when I am carving all my other ring orders. But for more elaborate designs, that I want to model in a 3D software, I need more uninterrupted time. So today I wanted to see how an idea for a ring design would actually look.
I started modeling it in Rhino and T-splines while sipping on my coffee and munching on my Sunday eggs. I had a half eternity ring in mind with the stone settings only on the top half around the band and a plain shank below to be able to size the ring. A couple hours later I had wax models done for a couple variations of that design:

How I got there I will show in a separate post as it will get pretty long with a step-by-step description.
I did stop in between go to the market and to give the doggies a nice long Sunday morning walk. They were pretty happy too.
