As mentioned in an earlier post I’ve been working on some stacking rings in Silversmithing class this term.
Well after weeks of soldering, and filing, and filing, and a bit more filing, some burnishing, some polishing, a bit more filing, more polishing and some final burnishing they’re finally done!
Amethyst and rainbow moonstone rings. As you can see on the small-stoned ring the bezel setting isn’t pushed in all the way around the stones. That’s because this idiot here soldered them together (accidentally) and didn’t realise it would be an issue until the stones actually went in.
I’ve been doing a bit more work on them in class and they’re looking a lot better now.
I’m so pleased with how these turned out. I still have 4 semi-precious stones left to do so I’ll be making a few more rings. Next on my list to do is some plain silver rings so I have a few more combinations to do with the stacking rings.
