I have a custom ring on my plate right now that I’m getting really
into and having fun with (yeay!), it is a daily wear ring in silver
and so the customer agrees that a heavy shank with a texture is the
best way to go, it is going to get banged up may as well make it look
delibrate… only problem with a hammered texture is that she
already owns a few of my hammered rings and she doesn’t want them all
to look alike.
I think I’m out of textures I can easily do to the metal, so I’m
experimenting with textures in wax and trying out samples of
everything I can think of, are there any techniques that you
wonderful people can suggest? She wants the ring to be a door-knocker
so I have lots of room to play in.
