Butane torch heating up fine silver prior to enamel dip.
Today's ring was an exploration in a couple of things. One, torch firing enamel onto fine silver and two, making a multi-part stacking ring. The enameling part has a definite technological learning curve, so I am still at the very bottom of that one. But I did get this to work a bit and am enthused again by possibilities of adding color to jewelry in yet another way. Nobody ever accused me of being a purist, nor of having too few ideas! I am not certain how well this particular ring would stand up to wear, but for an art ring experiment, I love it!
