Here's a peek at what I've been working on...
I draw the design onto card to check how it will fit when made in silver and stone.
Saw-pierced from sterling silver sheet.
Shaped and soldered, the cut-outs are 'ruffled' with texture.
My flower stamp is on the inside of the ring.
A little bit of planning is needed with this design.
I need to know what should be done before shaping and soldering and what can be done afterwards.
There's still the bezel for the stone to be completed and soldered,
along with six little silver buds
to help decorate the ring.
I hope to have it finished this week,
more photos to follow!
