To make this ring I form 12 gauge fine silver wire into a circle, fuse it with a handheld torch, hammer the ring to size and then add the patterns and texture using a variety of tools. The ring is then oxidized using a mild liver of sulfur solution and tumbled and hand polished to bring back the shine and bring out the surface texture. Each one is unique!
Fine silver is almost pure (99.9%) and although it may dull with wear it does not tarnish as quickly as sterling silver does. You can easily bring back the original luster of your ring with a standard silver polishing cloth.
This ring is made to order and can be created in any size between a US 1 and a US 10. Please let me know your size preference at checkout.
