Amazon My first project was making this simple silver ring. We simply measured how big we wanted the ring to be, and had our instructor give us the right length of silver wire.

Then I wrapped the wire around a ring mandrel to make it round. Then I sawed off the unwanted part. Then I soldered the slit together and buffed it a bit to make it shiny.

My second ring was a split-open ring. This was much more challenging because it involved multiple soldering instances and more materials.

The most special thing I had to do was that I needed to make a bezel to hold the stone. I also made some "free-style" design on the ring as you can see. An expert would know that going "free-style" means trying to make up for mistakes in the process

If you have any questions let me know and I will do my best to help you!
