The Metalsmith's Ring - size 8.75
Sterling silver - reclaimed
Gold (fill) stacker - bonding a layer of gold to the base of a metal (sterling silver) to get the gold appearance
This ring will fit well on an 8.5 finger
Every so often I name a ring The Metalsmith's Ring for the amount of work I put into it. This ring took a lot of prep and nerve to build. There's a lot that went into it to say the least. It's thick and raw and organic and bold and graceful. It's everything a metalsmith could want. The gold (fill) stacker brings out the glow and I'm so happy with this ring, I could lay down and cry.
Made with love - one of a kind, twisted, bent, set, sawn, etched, fired by my own two hands.
Note to buyer: The reclaiming process is a bit of a long one. Most of the sterling silver I buy is from well used jewelry that isn't being worn anymore or has been broken. I also buy used sterling silverware. I melt it all down and roll it into sheet and wire. This means that I don't have to buy freshly mined silver that is much easier to work with. Reclaimed pieces cost more because of this extra process. In the end, reclaiming metal for my wares is gratifying and worth it to me. I hope you feel the same. With love.
