Custom Ring Challenge




I was asked to make a ring to match my Iron Man bracelet. The customer bought the bracelet for her husband and he wears it all the time, so she wanted a ring to give him for his birthday.

I had to really think about this one, but I came up with a design that works.

It's 2 sterling silver bands with the braided copper in the center. I flattened some 18g sterling wire to wrap it together, then soldered those in place.

It turned out beautiful! It is so much prettier in person. I could NOT get a good photo, no matter how many I took. I'm not listing this one in my store, so I guess it's a one-of-a-kind!

The customer said she loves it and wants it, so I did okay! I like being challenged to try new things. Keeps me young! ;P

Thank you Barbara! This ring was not by choice. I wouldn't have done it without being pushed! :)

Thanks for sharing your jewelry on your blog. I only do bead woven jewelry, but I like looking at other hand made types.
