Steam-powered rings

I'm not much of a fan of putting  commercial stuff on any of my blogs. (That's why I don't run any adverts. Heh.) Well, except for that Entrecard thing.

However I just found out that my friend (our friend, actually) Angelika wants to win an odd-looking (my opinion) ring, and so this post is to try and help her. Me making a post about the rings and linking it to the seller gives me 10 chances to win, and if I happen to win I'm going to give the ring to Angelika.

So bear with me today.
---------
First, I must admit that I had never heard of such a thing as steam-powered rings. Actually, I had never heard of rings that ran on anything else either. Silly me, I thought rings just sat there on your finger.

Here is the link to the lady's Espy shop if you want to see the different kinds of rings and other weird interesting things she makes and sells. Or you can just click on the above picture. (Or the below picture, as you please.)

Anyway, this is a picture of the ring Angelika (and I) want to win in this drawing:
This is called the Purple Swarovski.

Actually, the rings are hand-crafted of materials in the "Steampunk" style, rather than actually burning your fingers and shooting out steam. Which is to say they LOOK like they would run on steam. If you are looking for something ever-so-unique (each is made by hand and is therefore truly unique) please take a moment to click on the pictures and see this lady's catalog.

I saw the same post and I also wanted a ring. I have to admit I NEVER IN A MILLION YEARS thought you had that amount of niceness in you. Wish someone would win me something, like the LOTTERY!

OK, THAT is a cool ring. Good luck!

I saw those last time I was at Etsy, which in fact wasn't that long ago. I loved it! They reminded me of an marbles, which I love to photograph. :)

I also found some spoon handle rings that I liked. I've always wanted one for some reason. Anyways, I hope Angelika gets it or you win it for her, sounds like she deserves it. yay!

Angelika said...

LMFAO! It would be so great if you won with this glowing post, LOL!

Angelika said...

Look for your High Five from me HERE.

That may be the coolest ring ever. I hope you and Angelika win!

@Sheila - Something tells me you are due in for your bi-monthly attitude adjustment. :)

@Ettarose - You cut me to the quick. My hide is thinner than you think. If I win the lottery, you may be sure I'll mail it to you. :)

@Stephanie Barr - Yes, so cool. I have never seen anything like this, but apparently "Steampunk" is a whole genre. Go figure. :)

@Chica - Marbles? What a coincidence since I've lost mine. Take pictures and send them back. Spoon handle rings? I'm not even going to ask :)

@Anelika - We'll win. How could we go wrong with 20 chances? Unless it is rigged. Better not be. Thank you for the High Five. That's awesome!

@Janet - Coolest ever? Mmmmmm. Maybe. But it is pretty and it is original. I hope you've noticed I am calling you Janet now. :)
