Silver initals pendants

 I made these initials a while ago, but it wasn't easy to find someone closeby to rhodinate.
Now, it's finally done.
At first when I made these kind of inital - pendants, I drew and created the letters myself; then let them choose, adjusted them and so on. Now I take stencils from websites such as dafont.com. They have a very big variety of fonts, in bolds, italics... and it's also much easier to print them out in different sizes.
I glue the cutout on my silver plate and simply saw around it. A lot of filing needs to be done afterwards and to finish it off I solder a little ring invisible onto the back of the initial.

I made a new hollow ring, a design I made two years ago.
Completely in silver, matte on the outside and polished on the inside and lastely it is rhodinated.

2 Silver rings - Alliance and commisioned ring

 This first ring was commissioned. It is a duplicate for an old ring to which she was very emotionally attached to, but it was too small and it was fixed up with tin solder so I suggested to make her a new one!
The stones in both of the rings are zirkonia and the rings are rhodinated.

This ring is an american wedding ring aka alliance. I might say: I will never make one of these agian. This I made for practice and although it is very pretty, you can buy 13 in a dozen online in your size and costumize it with different stones.
I'd rather put my time in more creative things ;)
