unraveled allen puzzle ringDear Calla,

I wore this ring for years and then I took it off. Why I don’t know. Somewhere in the intervening years it got all messed up. I bent it up trying to put it back together so now it’s really messed up.

Can I see a picture of these little kernels that’ll turn into my ring?

Will there be gluten in my ring?
