A little experiment with silver and copper

I have a problem .... a major problem .... it's called attention span, well that's what all the "normal" people would call it, I call it having to much noise going on in my head which distracts me every so often.... OK OK OK .... all the time

So I have this ring I have to make for someone, and I start by melting down and then pouring the silver into the mould, then rolling it out as one does at the start, cut it to length etc. etc. -  I do the necessary planning to start so that I know where I should be headed - it's after I actually get going that things go a bit awry, the voices start.... " "hmmmm try this.... or try that", and this is just what happened....

Ring was supposed to be a plain man's ring with groove cut into it and then the groove darkened with black patina.... but all the voices said "Nooooo try some copper ...... try some copper...." so I did!!

The result was good, I'm happy with it as an exercise.....  and that's where it ends, voices are quiet, I told them so, and now I have to make another ring as per the clients request.... 

Tune in again to this blog for the next exciting episode of the Ring that should Be ....
