Although I've been making jewellery for a while, engraving is new to me.
If I wanted to make a copy of this memento mori ring (see attached photo) what would be a suitable technique and tools to engrave the metal before the enamelling.
I know this may be pretty ambitious for a beginner, but any advice would be much appreciated.
