A real live treasure hunter has been visiting my studio lately and wanted this custom ring made from a 1805 Mexican coin he found himself. I told him that I could make it look like it had been pulled out of the ground, just like his coin and the rock, arrowhead. and 1937 coin he gave me! He loved it!!
Every once in a while I get inspired to gather up all of my unfinished projects to complete, examples to polish and tarnished jewelry to freshen up. This time I had a lot more than I expected and it took me a lot longer than I anticipated! Check them out in the gallery!
This is a new one for me. I was asked to create a sterling silver liner for a custom wood sugar box. The size of it creating some soldering challenges (needed lots of heat and a joint shifted making the box a smidge bigger) but it worked! While I was at it, Bill also wanted me to polish out dents in a silver pill box and antique sugar bowl.
