Moms B day Ring - Sterling and Prehnite

One good thing about making silver is that I don't have to go to malls and stores to pick out a present for birthdays:P
Here is momz b day ring!


To make the seat for the bezel I melted some scrap silver into a hole in my soldering block.


Red hot!


Pretty raw at this point...


Shaped and ready to solder together


All soldered up


Cleaned up and purty


Oxidized with liver of sulfer and ready to add a final finish then set the stone


All done... Happy b day!
