I won't go into the gruesome details, but these two rings went to hell and back! I had completely different plans for them, but when "things happened", saving them was my next plan.
This little one suffered the most. After realizing I had forgotten the beaded wire ... when I thought the ring was finished ... I had to remove all the silver embellishments from the ring. That's when I melted the end of it. So becoming a short cute perfect sized ring is the result. I love it.
The other ring didn't suffer as much, and a lot of filing and sanding save it too.
Maybe a day of rest tomorrow. And I need to clean my work areas before I can continue!
