My name is Marc Williams. I am a jeweler and a designer. The first suggestion
i will make to you isthis: If you are going to make a ring with a stone or
stones in it, decide what it or they will be first. Then decide on a shape of
stone. After you have done this you can get down to the nitty gritty. I have
to ask… are you a jeweler? Have you worked with metal before. i.e.gold,
If you haven’t then things may get ugly. If you have then you know what you
are in for… Another question I have is do you plan to fabricate this ring out
of the spefic metal or do you plan to carve a wax model and cast it? I can
help you thru your process but first you will have to decide on which path you
will take… Fabrication or wax model and casting… So please get back to me on
these couple of questions and we will get you started… OK?
You can E-mail me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
I will be happy to help you with any problem you have or we can keep posting
on the orchid service and everyone can help as well…

Subject: ring making
I’ve joined this group in hopes of finding out some that will
help me along with my task. I want to make, from scratch, a ring for a
woman. I’ve told her that when it comes time to solidify our relationship
I would not but a ring, but would take what I can see of her spirit and
put it into a ring of my own making. And I need to find out about
virtually everything from alloy making to jewel selection and mounting.
I would very much appreciate any sort of pointers.
