Ahhh at last, silver has been used. I cut out my ring, filed the ends so they would bend to make the stand up bits. I then soldered in the bends to strengthen them. I also cut out the top piece and the copper pattern bits to applique on the top.
So I did have a bit more of a busy time and actually felt I achieved something, We also had pickle this week in order to clean the pieces.I didn't quite get to finish my ring but have all the elements ready
