I may have a new obsession. And it’s expensive.
In December, I bought gold for the first time to make my mom a pair of earrings for Christmas. I was terrified as I held my torch to the gold to flow the solder, but they soldered beautifully!
I had asked some metalsmiths in advance, “what do I need to know about soldering gold?” They told me that if I could solder sterling silver, I’d have no problem with gold. I kind of didn’t believe them.
Since making the earrings, I’ve been thinking about doing a spinner ring using gold and finally bought the materials.
The wide ring is a flared sterling silver wide (1.1cm) band and the spinners are 14K twisted yellow gold and 14K rose gold.
I just love how this ring turned out, and it is so comfortable to wear. I’m excited to slowly introduce some new gold items to my product line!
