This is part two of a series on making stacking rings, to read part 1 click here.
Having made the silver rings I then needed to cut out the gold details and solder them on the rings.
I begin by filing an area on the rings so the gold triangles will be able to sit flat on the bands. Then I cut the mark out the different size triangles on my gold sheet.
Because the gold details are so small they need to be held in a ring clamp when filing and cutting them out.
Once I have all the gold pieces cut out I place them on the rings to make sure everything sits nicely together and they will work in a variety of positions. I stick these on with blu tack so I can move them around easily.
When I’m happy with the size, shape and direction of each of the gold triangles I can start setting up for soldering.
It’s not a great photo as the sun started streaming in the workshop window. Once I’ve finished all the soldering I’ll post pictures of the finished rings.
