A First For Me


Recommended Posts

Well my first time using gold in one of these rings anyway. This ring came from a larger knife billet of twisted jelly roll and standard twist with a high layer core, but after making the steel I put this ring together today inside of six hours. I know I still need to post a WIP thread on making these rings, hopefully after the holidays. But I thought I would share this exciting first, even if gold inlays are pretty boring and this inlay is very basic.

 

Thanks for looking.

This was my first thought when I saw that you posted a ring. Now I'm wanting you to do so even more! That is awesome! :D

I'm waiting to even try until I see your WIP/tutorial. I guess I could at least make up the billet while I wait.

Boring and basic? Have you been sniffing acetone, dude? Elegant simplicity is called for here, and you really nailed it!

Yup. What Alan said. Put the acetone down, man.

"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 for the kind compliments, perhaps I should put the acetone down... :D Dan the steel is cupped slightly outward on the edges of the joint, then the liner is press fit and (bezeled?) into place. I basically turning the liner into a partial rivet in essence.
