Wax width and ring size are both set before forming the desired shape . I was taught to always work from the inside out.
A couple of hours later and the wax is shaped to final form and the sprew is set up. Not making a wax injection mold because I’m setting a free form stone. Going straight to casting on this sweetie.
Almost ready for the oven. Gonna mix, pour and vacuum some casting powder.
Casting is done. Bezel is soldered and scored. Time to set the opal.
I know who’s gonna be rocking this tomorrow.
Yup. She loves it.
