Tension Set Ring
Harden the wire then coil it to size for your finger. The coil is cut into separate rings, and a seat is burred into the open ends for the stone.
This ring is a clean, modern design featuring a hefty shank and small pop of color gemstone. Make a stack of them.
12 inches of 10 gauge round sterling silver wire. (This will yield 2, or more, rings with some scrap left over.)
3 – 4mm round faceted gem stone (I will have a supply of these for sale if you don’t have your own.)
Bracelet with Silver Solder Inlay
There are lots of options for unique designs using this technique.
First, create a texture on thick sheet (copper or brass) using burs, cutting discs, files, or by roller printing.
Silver solder is flooded into the recesses. The excess is removed revealing the design.
Use the patterned sheet to make a bangle, open cuff, or hinged bracelet.
Additional options include lining the cuff with a sheet of silver folded over the edge of the patterned metal, adding gemstones, and patina to enhance the color contrast.
Make earrings, etc., with left over patterned sheet.
18 gauge copper or brass sheet sufficient to create your bracelet design.
Hard silver solder in wire form. 2 feet should do it, but it depends on your pattern.
Optional: 24 or 26 gauge sterling silver sheet for the “ inside” of your bracelet.
