victorian ring reproduction

Complete!  Here is the reproduction of this Victorian snake ring I fell in love with.  The ring turned out very well and I am happy with it, but I have to admit that there is still something missing from the feeling of the original piece.  This ring feels much more modern to me and I guess I just have to come to terms with the fact that there is no substitute for an antique.  But since the antique ring I fell in love with was long gone, this is the closest I could get to the original, since I know darn well I would have never have found it's likeness in another antique ring.  I am enjoying wearing it though and I am happy knowing I own a little bit of the original's essence.
