The price of precious metals is still high compared with the price 6+ years ago and so the weight of our designs are just as important these days as they were back then. So it makes sense to be economic with the amount of metal we use. We need to use the metal wisely and also still make the design functional and long lasting.

This series of films shows Andrew creating a hollow form ring. As stone sizes increase, so does the amount of metal used so it pays to be sensible with the amount of metal used both for functional qualities as well as cost. Andrew shows you how to create a practice piece to ensure you have all the measurements just right before you order in your precious metal.
