    Hiya,

    here are a couple of rings with Gold (tight budget means they are the accent - but gold nonetheless)

    Reticulated yours and mine rings (gender neutral) They were constructed mostly through traditional soldering, and then using an Orion welder, additional gold pieces were added. I am not the best at doing chunky rings, or finishes that are more organic, but I so loved making these. Good luck in advance to all the lovely ones to come.

    Hi Everyone,
    I don't do much gold work, or brass. It is a bit of a push, but how about golden citrine? My ginkgo earrings aren't technically difficult - but I was really chuffed to find a ginkgo tree outside the silversmithing classroom to use for my photo.
