I used some silver wire that my mom had back in college to make the ring. I have a fair amount of 18g silver sheet that I will be using to create new things as I progress in class (next week earrings!). It’s a simple ring, and it’s kind of cool I am wearing something she once worked with too.
I hadn’t used a jeweler’s saw in a long time and worried that I would be breaking blades right and left when cutting out the brass fish. But I am proud to say, I didn’t break any! I will be sweat soldering the fish to the copper circles next week, since I ran out of time this week. The copper circles were made using a punch and hammer.
I’m really, really looking forward to making more things.
