1. For this ring I started by making two inner rings.
2. Then I fused a thick plate of silver.
3. I pull it in a rolling mill for the right thickness.
4. I turn it into a ring with pliers. It needs to be annealed often for it is so thick and is hard to bend.
5. I solder it, and shape the ring thinner from under and let it be thicker from the top.
6. In here the inner rings are yet soldered into the mainring.
7. Making sure the rings are round.
8. Then I soldered the little silver pieces on the gap between the inner rings and the main ring.
