Six Memos for the Next Millennium

It has been a long long day trying to get the two last rings from the 'Six Memos' series finished. As far as the photograph goes, this is work in progress. I need to wait for some natural light.

Six Memos For The Next Millennium, rings by Cari-Jane Hakes, 2011
These rings are based on the five chapters in the book by Italo Calvino titled 'Six Memos for the Next Millennium'.  I don't mind admitting they have taxed and vexed me for some time.  This series has pushed me conceptually and technically in every single area.  All the wrestling has left me pretty much unable to string a sentence together.  So if you'll forgive me, I'll save the more detailed discourse for another day.
