Disclaimer : If you are my future husband reading this blog, sorry my dear, but all the rings are the size of my fingers. But to be fair, it's your mistake that you haven't met me yet. :) Today, "Haven't met you yet" and "Put a ring on it" songs were on my mind.:). Guess what, I just thought, like Cinderella's story, maybe I will find my husband by the size of his finger that would fit one of these rings. :)
If you know me, you know that I am so determined at doing something if I set my mind to it. I started with a second band ring with copper late in the evening but I was really fast this time, as I had the experience of making two rings already. I did not add the little shiny silver balls though.
That was it, I was so exhausted, and out of time that I had to call it a day.
You might be wondering how the first ring is closed, when I left it open yesterday. I couldn't give up on that ring. I annealed it today and then uncompressed it again, soldered and then formed it into a band. Of course all these rings have a nice finish as I spent a huge amount of time, sanding them, buffing them, oxidizing them again and again till they got the finish I wanted. I didn't know why one would oxidize a silver ring until now. You can see the silver band I made yesterday and you can see why. It is to make the pattern be more obvious. Otherwise the stars would blend into the shine of the sliver. I was so excited, I wanted to keep on going but it had to come to an end. Hopefully I will do something more in the new year. :) Till then, have fun my friends.
