Andrew is delving into how rings are made. An At The Bench member sent through a photo of a couple of rings and asked Andrew how they were made. She already had an idea herself but wanted to know how Andrew would make them.
Knowing what to look for is essential when it comes to finding out just how jewellery is made. Piercing metal usually leaves a slight rough edge. Etching leaves a smooth edge but you can not etch too deep without the walls becoming undercut. All of this knowledge enables Andrew to work out how these rings were made and Andrew goes about making one of the rings in question.
