I love using up scrap pieces of metal and wire - you just never know how the piece will end up. And I love how this one turned out - a real eye-catcher!
The ring is made from 22g argentium silver sheet and a wine cork! The base piece was run through a rolling mill to achieve the nice pattern. The cork was set into a 22g scrap of argentium sheet. The ring was dipped in a patina to accentuate the lovely pattern.
The ring is 1" wide and fits a size 8 to 8.5. The bands was made from 10g argentium wire.
Argentium silver is very tarnish resistant, however a small black anti-tarnish pad comes with each ring. It should be stored with the ring when not worn.
