Two Foliage Rings with Labradorites

These rings were basically mammoth soldering jobs. I made a framework structure in silver wire, then decorated it with leaves and flowers. I only used hard solder. To achieve these, I cut some dies in mild steel and used these to stamp some three-dimensionality onto cut-out elements and melted blobs. It all took a while, but I think the results are worth it.

    I can imagine how much work it was because I do jewellery by myself, too. This ring is really beautiful. I love the blue stone and the floral elements of the setting.

  2. Thank you for sharing your most wonderful pieces of art. I have a deep love of labradorite (I have one on right now) but the settings you made! Oh!! Thank you again.
