So I was asked by my sister and brother-in-law to make them their wedding rings. They were not looking for anything special just some plain bands. My brother-in-law’s original plan was to wear his grandfathers wedding ring that had a knife edge. He needed it stretched up but there was one problem, it had already been resized down and soldered in two places. I was unable to find a piece of gold stock with the knife edge to size it up, so I did the next best thing and made a replica of it and decided to make my sister-in-law a matching one. They have been wearing black silicon wedding bands so i decided to oxidize them to match the silicon rings. I tried to set some birthstones on the inside of the ring, but I didn’t have the correct size burr and wouldn’t be able to get it in time to give them their rings at the wedding.
Here I am rocking my sweet 1970’s Tuxedo with ruffles that I got from a vintage store in Philadelphia. I grew the mustache for this occasion.
