For some reason I made a lot of rings this week.  In fact, I’ve been making a lot of rings the last few weeks.  I think I’m subconsciously trying to make up for not having any at all in my shop during the first few months of its existence.

One of my favorites, is the Golden Waves Ring, pictured below:

Golden Waves Ring $55, 10k yellow gold

This is actually the second version of this ring.  I made the original many years ago in 14K yellow gold and sold it.  The new one is different in that it only has three rings, but I think I actually prefer a stack of three because it’s a little more comfortable to wear.

The construction of the ring is rather simple.  I made three bands of gold and bent each of them in the middle so that the sides came up.  Then I stacked one on top of the other and soldered them together where the bends are.  Finally, I used my jeweler’s saw to gently define where I soldered the bands together so they appear to be separate, even though they are soldered together.

I am thinking I will have to make a version of this in silver…
