Pattern wire can be a lot of fun to work with. However, I always like to give it a little something “extra” when I can.
In this case I took two hammered stacker rings of the same inner diameter needed and soldered them to the outside edges of some Western Floral pattern wire stock after it, too, had been formed into a ring. I then filed down the inside edges to round them slightly for an extremely comfortable ring to wear.
This picture was taken after the ring had been oxidized and polished, so you can easily see how the Liver of Sulfur patina can really make the designs in the pattern wire stand out.
