Make a wish dandelion glass dome ring by Xerces Make a wish dandelion glass dome ring by Xerces
Hello everyone! Long time no see! With effectively two jobs, I'm a little short on time, but I'm always here non the less!
With Christmas on the way, it's the time for wishes and miracles, here is a simple but gorgeous ring made using a tiny glass dome crammed with real dandelion clock seeds. These are sealed in to keep those last wishes safe with you- guaranteed not to fly away and to always stay with you!
I had these little domes custom made, and I think they make for some lovely little dome terrarium statement rings. I sell them in kits as well if you're feeling creative. They also make a wonderful craft gift for Christmas!
Hope you're all doing okay! <3

Does this remind anyone else of the compass from One Piece? That's what it makes me think of. They are both awesome!

So glad you like it! I've purchased these little domes as a commission from a glass merchant, but I do sell the ring kits if you need one :)

OOH! Want want want! Definitely would be a little tentative of wearing it though. Do these break easily?

Thanks! Glad you like it! I can't say I've purposely tried to break one, but I wore one of these rings for 2 days to test it out a bit, and it didn't really get in the way as much as I thought it would, nor get knocked much. These little domes are a bit thinner than some I've seen on sale, but after buying some of the bigger ones, commissioning these ones made me feel a lot better about making things out of them because they're a lot less cumbersome. I think so long as you're not doing heavy labour, and you just wear them for average everyday use, they should be okay. Even when I hit one with my car keys, it was okay, but I wouldn't wear one for my laboratory day job!

Wow, that's looks really amazing. So simple jet striking. It's so dreamy. I'm an artist myself and usually i don't buy jewelry for myself. but this is something I would be considering :) Nicely done ;) Hope to see more works like that. I just love "trapped in a sphere" theme.

Thank you so much! I'm glad you like it! Especially if you're not easily swayed!
I've got a few more ideas for these little domes- I commissioned the creation of 300 of them to be made, so I've got plenty of thinking to do!
