Before and After…

This ring started with just three pieces of silver…a bezel, backing, and ring shank. Having hammer-textured the silver, the bezel join was soldered and then all three pieces were soldered together in one step. This is the ring fresh out the pickling solution.


After a wire brush polish, forming the adjustable shank on a ring mandrel, dipping in a solution of liver of sulphur, giving a final polish, and adding a faux resin crystal and glass shards, here is the 
final product…my sterling silver and resin “Faux Peridot Crystal” Ring. The faux crystal stands 25mm above the base and the base is also 25mm wide. Quite the statement piece!
