I am VERY pleased with this spiral ring - after three weeks of monday nights silversmithing this is my first project (after a practice copper ring) I made this from scratch form a sheet of silver


And heres a few of my other recent pieces
A chunky necklace and earring set for my sisters 18th



A necklace for me from natural died and undied stones and shells


A very pretty but simple necklace which fastens wherever you want it to with one magnet


A phone case and charm set

Thanks (o:
KIT-CAT, erm i could try and do a tutorial but do people have access to silversmithing tools?
Natius - your course sounds a lot more formal than mine - its 3 hours on a monday night, we all made a copper ring for our first project but from then on we have to think what we want to try and make and then make it. Kindof good but kindof hard to imagine what we can make. I would have liked a few more demos of some equipment i think!!
