How did you make your wedding and ring and can you show us a photo of it?

Hi there, random anonymous person interested in jewelry! I went to the workshop of my friend and coworker Alison Bruun to make it, and she guided my wife and I through the process. We ordered metal ahead of time, mine was a yellow gold 5mm wide half-round piece. First we measured our fingers, and cut the pieces to length using a jeweler’s saw. Then we filed the cut end perfectly flat and flush on a filing guide. Then we took pliers and bent the wire into a d-shape, so that the flush ends of the wire were perfectly touching, along where the straight part of a D would be. After this, we soldered the join together with a torch, filed the join until it was invisible, then hammered the D shape into an O shape over a ring mandrel. The last step was to stretch it to size on a ring stretcher, and voila! 😀
