It may not look very special, and when worn no one is going to be able to tell the difference from a regular inlay, but it matters to me, and it makes me so happy! It may not look like much, but the work behind it was extensive and painstaking.


I am really not supposed to post this yet, but the wedding is not for another couple of months and I am so proud!
I've seen quite the few stacked and soldered straight rings, a few with a faintly waved line through-n-through but never anything like this.

I wanted to create a band with an irregular wave line, but a line that wasn't simply made as an inlay but that would never come off. And show on the inside. In gold. So what I did was pretty much sawing up a squiggle-edged, very expensive clothing pin. :P And clamped a white gold sheet in between, then soldering it together. I then split the bullion in half, so the gents' ring will have a pattern perfectly mirrored against the lady's. <3

There will be more pictures later, but for now.. I was so excited I had to post it! :squee:

(OMG it worked! When I realized that and I saw the pattern for the first time.. I nerdgasmed. :blush:.)

This is a really outstanding piece. Having the line right the way through is a technical masterpiece but also design brilliance :D

D'awh. :blush:
(It is very Swedish to be humble about one's brilliance. It's a social no-no and "forbidden" to brag over here. It is very frowned upon to be proud over one's accomplishments.. But hell, I know you're right! ;) )

I just don't know enough about what you're doing here to be able to make an intelligent comment. I mean, it looks cool and I'm fairly certain that, given a hundred years, I would not be able to duplicate it, but otherwise, I'm carrying my lunch and walking to work. On the other hand, something that gives one a nerdgasm..well, that has to be pretty fucking special.

So :squee: back at ya..!

Well, I wouldn't be able to do this sort of things unless I had customers, right? You are just as important (or even more so) as any "knowing craftsman" - Because if you don't like it, I'm toast. Since then no one would buy it. :hug:

Also, you cheer me on, make me happy and inspire me! And that's worth more than gold to me! :heart:
