When I became engaged a year and a half ago I had every intention of making my wedding rings, little did I know what a challenge it would be. I wanted them to be pattern welded steel with a gold inlay like J. Arthur Loose's rings, I thought it should be relatively simple to do, but man was I wrong... It ended up taking me seven rings to get them right (seven busted rings) but as of yesterday I finally got them down. After ruining a bit of gold (saved and remelted down) I decided to go with bronze as I have always been fond of that metal. Also because the pattern weld was not stainless it needed to be sealed anyway so there shouldn't be any discoloration. All that being said here they are and I would love to hear what you think of them. I still have a long way to go until I get this technique under my belt, but for a first attempt I think it went well. Robert
