a love affair with my hammer

dana ring

total love affair with my hammer today and this piece of platinum (shown below). forging an ingot formed from a wedding ring and an engagement ring (diamonds removed of course). so satisfying to see the rings so separate, completely fused, and rolled and forged into a band. i love transformation. at whatever pace, it never ceases to inspire.

on the left, you see the platinum rings I started with. on the right, the platinum ingot and hammer in the studio today, and at the top of the this post, you see the final product…I just love this ring!!!
