A Ring For Veee!

Here are some process photos for a ring that I'm custom-making for Veee...

I haven't blogged in a while, so I figured I should at least start somewhere.

So this ring is about 80% done. All that is left to do is the rivets, set the stones and polish it up! The name of the ring is "dichotomy" (which is stamped inside the band) since I love the contrast between the surfaces and styles.

If you don't know by now, I'm a huge fan of rivets, so I've been working with them more and more.


Here are my sketches and the paper cut outs for sawing out of the silver sheet.

Here are the pieces...not even soldered together yet (or sanded!)

Arranging how I want the little silver balls to be....

All the little silver balls are soldered on...as well as the bezel...just have to 
put the names on the back and the ring band!


..after more soldering...


bottom part is oxidized...(note the setting for the flush set pink topaz is already done! Yay!)
More to come!
