i want to share the process of making a ring with you.
i have had these peace sign focal beads for years but have not worked with them.
i'm glad i saved them. this season i am following the path of peace. and having fun doin' it.
this is a lil' bit of my process
i stamp the back of the piece before i add the bezel!
serrated bezel strip to go around the bead
solder the circular bezel-- then solder it to the plate
cut the ring shank to the correct size and stamp it! PEACE!!! my makers mark L+F
solder the shank to the back plate
-add the stone and set it, i use an agate burnisher. i love it! and I'm done.
of course- finish sanding (down to a very fine grit-polishing and waxing are the final steps to making a piece like this) one that will feel soft and loved, easy to slip on the finger and one that never looses its shape!
so to all you jewelry makers out there- or jewelry lovers, heres to you- may you find this day in beauty and peace
