Medieval Wire Ring

 Here is a ring I taught in class this weekend at the Midrealm's first Fire Arts Symposium  {Barony of the Flame} [Vine Grove, KY].
It is based on a ring in the Antiquities collection of
The Scheme's logo
see link below.
 Date from: Circa AD 550
Date to: Circa AD 800
What I find most interesting about the original find is that it is in square wire. I used cheep round German Silver plated copper wire for this one.

Here is a simpler, similar one that appears to be in round wire
