In 1999, during some downtime at a trade show, several of us took a few of the spheres that were displayed in bowls and tried balancing them on bangle bracelets. Across the aisle from our show space was a water fountain which worked perfectly for filling the spheres with water. We added a flower to each sphere and “voila!” a fabulous new bud vase happened. We have since modified the bangle bracelet to become our 1 3/4″ ring. We have sold tens of thousands of these rings over the years. They are perfect for holding any sphere 3″ to 8″ in diameter.
