Sold my first piece

So I got my first customer Friday of last week for a sterling silver pinky ring. I made it out of sterling silver round wire 8g, forged it to a flatter piece and textured it with my goldsmiths hammer as well as putting it in liver of sulfur. I charged the customer just the price of the 1 ft wire I bought bc I was kind of nervous making my first sell. Customer loved it. It fit perfect and I was extremely happy to creat something someone else loved. First step towards my end goal.

I sold my first piece over 50 years ago. It was a ring very similar to yours. Good luck…Rob

I was so excited at my first one. I eprked my tail off on it. It was a tungsten carbide ring with inlay. Sadly as soon as the lady got it she did a card cancel and stole it and since i sold through facebook sellers, they didnt protect me and charged me still. A hard lesson to not sell on facebook. Ugg
