Now and then I go through old, abandoned projects. For this ring, my original plan was to connect two pieces by soldering something on the top and the bottom.
I had spent so much work to prepare the rings, so when I found them again, I thought it would be a shame not to make use of them.
This was at a moment when I felt inspired to go back to the roots, so I grabbed the saw. As a jeweller student, the first thing you learn is to handle the saw – and you have no idea how frustrating that can be, in the beginning! Here was all that blank surface to saw right into, so that’s what I did, line after line after line.
After soldering the two halves together, I oxidised the ring, and couldn’t resist making an eye candy shot under the roof window.
I like this idea of using the saw to make a pattern, so I might do it again. This abandoned-project-turned-new-prototype has been on my finger a lot lately. It’s very comfortable to wear.
To stay with the theme of picking up the old and going back to the roots, wouldn’t this also be a way to write (I mean saw) in runes?
As always, the possibilities are endless.
