The ring I was working on for JM1 at Pratt is finally done.
The shiny grey-black on the top of the ring is liver of sulfur patina heavily worked with a brass brush. I got as little of the LoS onto the ring band as possible and it only took a few minutes with sand paper to knock it back to a nice brushed silver.
The front has been slightly recessed by pushing it down over a large dapping punch. I wanted to prevent the fine strips between the branches from getting caught on clothing etc.
I am particularly pleased with how the texturing on the dome has survived the construction process.
I’m pleased with it. It’s awkward to wear for everyday because the top dome sits so far above my finger. I’d like to make another one with the dome set down into the ring band. Maybe next quarter.
