Another Metal Smith in the Family!

My 11 year old son has made his first ring...


He picked the stone, cut the stone, ground and polished the stone.  He then designed a ring using copper and sterling silver.  With his father as teacher-he got lessons in cutting sterling sheet, soldering, stone setting and band making.  Check out the rest of the pictures of his finished ring...









He created this ring for his aunt Kelly-who I am sure will treasure it for the rest of her life!

Also take a look at our new line of Tierra Cast jewelry findings we have for sale online:
