I wanted to make a ring with different layers and textures, so I decided to make a metal scrappy looking ring. Whenever I look at this ring it reminds me of the program Scrapheap challenge.
I then drilled varies sized holes it the thinner 4mm wire, to show depth and give a real scrap yard effect. I placed the 6mm D shaped wire through the mill to flatten the hammered texture, to help make it easier to solder the two pieces of wire together.
I placed solder in between the holes and soldered the wire together, where the two metal layers didn’t completely touched I added more solder. I then formed the two wire pieces into a D shape and soldered the ends together.
I used the mandrel to create a ring shape next I oxidized the sing ring to give a black rustic effect to the outside of the ring.
Tah dah! See the finished ring below! I will be making this ring again and retrying the process, next time I will make the width slightly larger maybe 8mm, to make it a more masculine ring. My favorite thing about this ring is where the drilled holes have broken, which was a complete accident, don’t you just love a good accident haha.
