Start in SolidWorks

Step 1: Initial Sketch

Because of how the sketch is made, the rings that will be created will be completely independent of the body of the ornament, however they will not be able to come off due to the track they are set in. Effectively this means that these rings will be able to spin once the part is made. Later on I will add in features to each ring and their ability to move will allow for customizable images.
