I start off the week with home made breakfast. Bought freshly from the baker and added ham and cheese. With fresh ingredients, breakfast tastes better here. I enjoy going to buy fresh ingredients at the supermarket during my free time.
On Monday, I started on a new ring. This time the ring is much more difficult to make as it composes of 4 parts that suppose to fit exactly. This is the most challenging project I have done and I put my skills to the test.
As practice, I was suppose to cut out shapes that are of the same height and size. Then file it perfectly into square, triangle and circle. This took me some time as it is hard to perfectly get the exact measurements.
My roomate Moe’s last night here in Florence. We decided to have dinner at night and enjoy the nice view of Florence’s Ponte Vecchio to commemorate her last day here. I will miss her dearly and look forward to meeting her in Japan!
This is the detail of the underside of my ring. As a hole is needed before soldering the bottom and top part together, this is the design I created. It is super challenging to cut out this part but I managed to finish it without messing it up.
One of the days I also went to San Donato Shopping mall. It is 15minutes away from the city center and we wanted to watch a movie but it was only in Italian so decided not to. We walked around the area and headed back.
