by Dianne Jacques. (Windsor, Vermont) My latest addiction is rings…and I am having a blast and more importantly, learning a lot. Rings are a great way to practice soldering joins and finish detail.

by Maxine Booth. (Jamestown, TN) This sterling and amazonite ring was created just off the top of my head, with things that were on my worktable and driving me crazy. I think I found a good use for them, in an off-kilter sort of way. The headpin that holds it together is not sterling but I think it works well to complete the look. Maxine Booth Jazzy Joolz … [Read more...] about Just for Fun Ring

All the items are hand fabricated using traditional methods of sawing, soldering, annealing, in other words all time consuming and not the cleanest. But in order to bring out the inherent beauty of metal, it … [Read more...] about Hand Fabricated Sterling Silver Rings
