Hey all- I've been busy doing some real experimenting making steel in addition to trying to wrap up a nice blade or two.

 

But I did finally get these rings done... I want to do more of them!

 

My own stainless damascus, 18k yellow gold and 12 rubies.

"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; because there is not effort without error and shortcomings; but who does actually strive to do the deed; who knows the great enthusiasm, the great devotion, who spends himself in a worthy cause, who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement and who at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly." -- Theodore Roosevelt

Thanks, everyone. I'm definitely going to be making & marketing more like these.

 

Garrett- I can't pick! ;) I do like the larger one because the stones go around it more, but I like the smaller one because the moments of stones interacting with pattern are really interesting. :)

Good looking rings J.

 

I think emeralds would look even better (because green is my favorite color ;)) . I've seen smaller, faceted chrome diopside stones from Russia recently that look even better than emeralds, and are a fraction of the price of emeralds of the same clarity/color.

I've rarely posted, but I wanted to chime in that these are great...JA did my own wedding ring, a "simple" stainless damascus with white gold liner, and I love it. It gets compliments all the time.

In fact, since buying this ring from him and getting married, I've gotten into jewelry and now work full-time in the field...the amazing work from Mr Loose and on this forum in general played no small part in that.

Hey thanks, Dwayne & Fox.

 

Dwayne it's nice to know we're all inspiring each other here on The Forum!

 

Fox & Sean- I mean to be doing more colorful stones... though I'm a huge fan of the red & gold. These rubies are really purple / pink, though in the right light they really flash!

 

I have a garnet / gold ring with one stone and a few more in the eventual works... :)
