One Ring to... that's all I know, I haven't seen the movie!

My soldering could be better, I've not had a lot of practice at it so I'm making some rings to improve my skills with the torch.

I wanted to say thank you to a friend for helping me move house and for braving a particular Swedish furniture store with me last holiday weekend (1 hour of queuing, thank god they have hot-dogs!) so I made this...


5mm x 1.2mm thick plain Sterling Silver band. It's not perfect but it's a start.

From start to finish it took just over an hour, it weighs about 3.5g so the material cost is about $3.15. That's the great thing about silver, with a bit of time, effort and skill, you can make something beautiful that doesn't cost a lot of money. I can't remember the last time a $3.15 present made someone smile so much :)

Hey Daws, the SS ring looks great. Not surprised your friend was happy with it.
