More TAFE  projects.

I thought I would share the final result of my wax carved ring with you. I realized that my design was not the easiest to clean after being cast. There are lots of spots and grooves that are hard to get into. I ended up using an engraver in some of the grooves to make them smooth and that worked well. And  after the final emery and polish; this is what it looks like:                              




The next project is a four claw ring. I am currently working on the setting - it is a very little thing to hold and so much detail to work on. I hope you can imagine from the photo how tiny it is:
That is all the jewellery work I have had time for this week.

I hope you are all having a great weekend.
