Alices Three Colour Gold Art-Deco Diamond Fan Ring Set
Part 7…Alice’s rings – Making V-Shape Bands!!
As well as my organic curls and waves I also make many designs that are more geometric in nature! Alice’s starting point was to have a new wedding and engagement ring set based around ‘fan-shapes’ and art-deco forms. See what Alice’s rings looked like before I started HERE.
In this image I’m starting to make the v-shaped wedding band which will ‘fit’ alongside the the red gold band of the engagement ring.
Here you can see that I’m starting by making up the v-shape bend at the front of the ring. Looks easy right?…NOT!
Its actually pretty tricky to get a strip of metal wire to curve ‘exactly’ along the same line as another ring. Unless of course you were designing this ring on a computer, you could just 3d-model identical shapes. However because Alice’s rings are being re-modeled, I am working her metal by hand so that we can recycle the metal and include the sentiment of original pieces into the new rings.
So when you are trying to make a double ring band, or in this case a triple ring band, by hand you have to be patient and spend considerable time with hammers and pliers to bend the wires bit-by-bit to make identical bands!!
