    Default Just thought I would share

    I always look forward to seeing others work but rarely post my own as I feel too self conscious.
    Anyhow I suppose I should if I like to look at others peoples, its only fair really.

    This is a horseshoe ring I made, its the 4th one so far and I always find them very tricky to get right but Im actually quite pleased with this.
    2.5mm silver sheet with groove cut on the milling machine and horsehair braid inlaid.
    The horseshoe is drawn freehand around the stone and cut out with a piercing saw.
    Claws set inside and then the sides marked out for stones and stones set.

    That looks incredible Sarah, do you coat the hair in anything to make it so neat and perfect?

    Thanks Josef and Faith
    The hair is just braided, this is a flat braid, the silver edging protects it pretty well.
