I was toying with the idea of making a ring that looked like the moon and was curious if I could create the moon texture using nothing but solder. Looks like I could. The eagle appearing in the solder flow was completely accidental.
The band of this ring has been carefully hand-cut from American-made jeweler’s brass, hammered and filed smooth. The band has been expertly soldered together using lead, Nickel, and cadmium free silver solder to form a continuous circle.
The center of the ring has been artistically hammered, domed, and melted silver dripped into the moon before being carefully soldered to the band. If you tilt the ring just right, you will see a profile view of an eagle’s head in the flow of the silver.
This ring has been beautifully polished with Onxy patina ink applied to add interest.
