    Default The reticulated test pieces

    Rather than hogging the other thread I thought I'd post them here.
    There are going to be some more (pins, large necklaces etc), but these are the first ones.
    I think I want to rethink the ring band. I love how it looks, but sizing to order will be a bit of an issue and it's a bicep buster!

    They look very desirable Lydia, particularly as a group. Dennis

    thank you - you're very kind! It is 2mm thick - enough that it took repeat annealings and my best Hulk impression to persuade it into a curve!

    Love them. How are you going to size the ring?

    I do some 2.5mm thick and some 3mm thick D shaped wire ones.
    Im SO glad I have my Durston ring bender!
    I got as far as doing a 2.5mm in 9ct gold before I decided I needed one lol
