Here is the sterling silver ring I created at metalsmithing class I took at craft alliance. I cut a ring band out of 18 gauge sheet silver. I cut out a little curvy design to make the shape a little more interesting. Then I formed the ring shape around a mandrel and soldered it together. I got this super cool tiny glass cabochon from Kara, a lampwork and silver artist in my class. I made a silver bezel setting, soldered it on to the ring and then set the blue stone.
