Here It Is In Silver

Here is my seed pod inspired ring in silver!

You can see the copper model for this in the post Here's One I Made Earlier.   This ring turned out to be more difficult to make in silver than in copper,  I think because I was copying something I had already made, rather than just playing with wire.  And also because I got a fit of the vapours.  Mistakes with silver tend to make me shed a tear.

Even if I say so myself, I think it is a little bit gorge.

My sister doesn't know it yet, but it's for her.  For Christmas.

 






My sister's fingers are narrower than mine
 so I had to model the ring on my little finger
which wasn't quite long enough!





I'm making another one of these seed pod inspired rings for myself.  I'm also working on the silver version of my seed pod collar/necklace.  Soldering silver is a bit of a challenge. I feel like I'm abusing the silver by having at it with a huge blow torch.
Silver also melts fairly quickly, so it's much easier to make a mistake.  You'll be pleased to know I'm rising to the challenge.
