I started three rings Friday and hope to get my new cabochons Monday or Tuesday so I can continue. I made a new template for the smaller ring and really like the way it fits. The regular sized one has a new addition, a second design layer on the top. Forming two layers into a narrow ring was a nightmare! It took several annealings, all the tools I have, and lots of pounding! Surprisingly, my bad shoulder still feels pretty good.
I made a second one the next day ... and for some reason it was easier, probably because I knew just what to expect.
Hope to show you finished rings later this week!
