Puzzle Rings crafted by Norman Greene 1. You must start with the band of the puzzle ring marked -Greene- at the top, and the two hanging down from it must have their tips (shown marked each with a color dot) pointing away from each other.
2. The Band at the bottom is brought toward you and up, like a book being closed. After it is brought up it is in front of the one marked -Greene-. The band that was brought up from the bottom is turned around. The right side comes toward you, the left side moves away from you. The band turns around like a top turning on its point. After turning it around, this band is placed against the one that is marked, covering up the -Greene-.
3. The sides, shown with a color dot on the tips, slide through the openings created in what will be the top design of the ring. Each side is slid along to get its tip into the center of the ring. The flat back part of each is outside the ring.
4. The sides are now folded up, one on each side of the ring. The tip of the one closer to you, marked with a red dot, must pass over the tip of the farther one, marked with a grey dot. Check to insure that the tips are passing each other closer tip over farther tip, and when they are all the way up it is done!

To assemble puzzles that I did not make, the twist of the band brought up from the bottom may be in the opposite direction. And the tips of the sides may pass each other with the closer bands tip going under the other tip instead of over the other tip. You may need to try these variations as different puzzle ring makers have different patterns they follow.
You may customize each puzzle ring with your choice of colors and mixes of 14K and silver. You have a choice of stones and settings.
