RE: [SCA-Archery] Archer's Rings
- Heraldicly, a weapon's normal position is as it would be used, thus a
sword is blade up and a pheon point down. If the position is
reversed it is said to be inverted. I would suggest making the rings
a pheon on a rondel. This eliminates any question of inversion and
lets the wearer choose if the pheon points distally or medially.

My right ring finger was just itching for a ring a moment ago, and I thought of this project. How far along did this move?
