This 29 carat Sunstone Handmade Copper Ring was made from 1/2 round 6 gauge copper wire. The copper wire was wrapped around a ring mandrel twice. I then bent each end of the copper wire perpendicular to the ring shank and trimmed each end to the proper length of the prongs that would be eventually formed to hold the Sunstone cabochon.
Using a jewelers saw, I cut/split the top and bottom ends down the middle to create left/right prongs. I next tapered and shaped each prong with a file and sandpaper/sanding discs. Just before setting the Sunstone cabochon, I soldered the two copper shanks together to give the ring more stability. After setting the cab, I used a series of engravers to produce the bark texture. A patina was applied to enhance the bark texture, then buffed for a final polish.
This Bark Sunstone Handmade Copper Ring can be found in my Muir Woods Collection, along with other copper and bronze rings set with a wide variety of large faceted and cabochon gemstones.
