A sterling silver Wedding Ring I created for, and along with, one of my nephews, Torrey…
After some scrap sterling was melted and poured into an ingot, it was then rolled and forged into a band, soldered closed then filed and formed on the inside edges for an extremely comfortable fit.
I smoothed the outer edges as well, but left the hammer marks from forging on the inner area to give a little play with light. The two grooves were created with a jeweler’s saw deep enough to hold an oxidized patina, and add a little extra style to what would otherwise have been a somewhat plain band.
Torrey thought the ring turned out absolutely wonderful. And, not only was he there during entire fabrication process and contributed to the ring’s design, but it was a handmade gift from his Uncle for a very special event that I hope he’ll keep and cherish for a very long time!
