This is going to be my last post on this page, as I have begun a photo blog on Instagram to share my studio happenings. Please follow me there at KellyLimbergJewelry.
For my last post here I wanted to share a recent topaz & silver ring, which has become one of my favorite pieces made to date. The ring started on paper with a to scale rendering of the design.
After the design was finalized, the work began. The first step was to create the bezel, which actually starts as a simple cone.
The next step was to cut and file out all the detail of the bezel. And once that was completed I had to create the split band to fit exactly around the bezel.
And with some soldering, patience and careful fitting the band came together.
A seat was then carved for the stone and the prongs shaped, and then finally the stone was set and the piece polished up.
Feel free to contact me if you are interested in having a custom ring made for you or a loved one!
