Summer time fun

Last summer, a friend of mine posted this picture on her blog. It was a watermelon from her garden. She said I wish I could wear it as bracelet. So I made her a watermelon bracelet.
Here's the picture of her wearing it. She was so excited.
It was the end of summer so I though I'll start making them early next year.

It made with skinner blend sheets. One is with red and white and one with green and white. The out side made with 3 layers of different hue of green, poking with tools then shave off the thin slides here and there to reveal the pattern below. You get it, right?

Since I am still working on the "Ring a day" project. Why not a watermelon ring? This is my ring#151. I think they are cute and fun to make as well.
I am trying to make 2 rings a day and put them on my ETSY store. At bead&Button, many people had asked to buy my rings, but I just want to keep them all till I finish the project. Then may be I can auction off the whole collection. What do you think?

Can I order this from you? I'm not joking. Billy@seohaus.com if this is possible. Before Halloween would be preferable - I hope to chat with you ;)
