This listing is for a 1/2" custom-built sterling silver band. The band is built of thick 18 gauge sterling silver. The ring stock I used is 1/2" wide before I build the ring- depending upon the pressure needed to form your ring in my ring press, the final width may be somewhat narrower than this. I texture the metal in my studio, using a variety of tools and techniques.

The third photo shows three different tooled surfaces- microhammered (done with a Foredom tool attachment), hammered (created with a ball peen hammer) and pinbrushed (created with a rotary pin tool on a bench lathe).

The fourth photo shows two aquatic options, both of which are created by running the silver through a rolling mill while up against a textured brass plate. You can choose from waves or bubbles. These textures stand out very well when oxidized to black and then polished back to leave only the debossed areas dark.

The fifth photo shows two woody options. The woodgrain pattern is created in the rolling mill. The birchbark option is created using the sharp end of a special hammer.

The fifth and final option shows the two options for band shape- on the right is a wider band which has been left in a flat-profile form. The band on the right shows a band that has been put into a press to create a domed, wedding-band shape. Unless you specify, your ring will be created in the domed wedding band shape (see the first photo for a good indicator of what this looks like).

All inside edges are sanded and polished to a high shine, thus ensuring a smooth and comfortable fit. The ring is hardened in my rock tumbler for several hours prior to being shipped.

TO ORDER: In the 'message to seller' area during checkout, please give me two pieces of information:
1. your chosen texture
2. your ring size (I will add a half size to 3/4 of size this in order to ensure a comfortable fit in this wide-band ring)

If you would like your ring oxidized, please contact me for a price adjustment- oxidizing the ring costs $5.
