Today's ring was an exercise in fusing fine silver by wrapping it around and folding over the ends before torching. Once I had done this, I realized I had the perfect space left to channel set a tiny gemstone, so I put in a little sapphire. Fine silver is so soft, though, that if I remake this ring I will use sterling for better sturdiness.
