    Default Simple, Sterling Silver Weddings Bands with a 'Celtic Twist' ',;~}~

    Simple design, Sterling silver, hand woven, endless 3 strand braid ('invisible' join - almost lol!) matching wedding bands:

    All joints made using 'hard' solder (every braid crossing point had also been hard soldered).

    Made after the fact for two very good friends of mine who (finally - YAYYYY!) got married earlier this year.

    Not very technical so needs to be done *right* and I could have done better - the idea is to close the ring with the braid pattern continuing seamlessly right through the join, which should remain totally invisible from inside, outside and around the edges - almost nailed it but the patterns aren't quite matched, especially on the larger ring, and there's solder-fill from the back where there should be a right-through space in the weave at each join.

    Please 'escuse' the picture quality - taken on a sheet of paper on the PC desk on a very grey day under a 12w fluorescent desk lamp (no flash of course) - even my wife's lovely little Olympus PEN couldn't do better with that, least not in my hands <chuckle>.

    Any constructive criticism or helpful tips, mighty welcome. ',;~}~

    Cheers folks - be well.

    Shaun.
