The first ring I have ever made with a soldered bezel with a wire wrapped band that is also soldered on! The cabochon is one of my dichroic fused art glass cabochons. Made of fine silver. I think it turned out pretty well. I was experimenting with a wire weaving pattern on the band so the wrapping has several mistakes.
I made two sterling silver rings in high school, but they were created using the lost wax method.
