                  I love that you used the sprue from your fiance's ring to cast your own! That's really sweet and just warms my heart. Congrats on the engagement!

                      I'm surprised your ring isn't made with damascus steel instead of gold...or maybe damascus gold? haha

                            These are absolutely stunning pieces of art! Very well done, there's nothing more special than hand made personal touches.

                            That being said, please, Please, PLEASE! be careful when working in the shop! Those metal rings can get caught and tear your finger up. Rubber/silicone rings with great for this!

                              I love the hammered finish on the ring. I think it gives a lot of character to the ring as you are a blacksmith.

For what you do... as just my personal experience I’ve seen that it might get to be almost impossible and that might be a reason not being married 😂 but hey never let that to happen mate!!

                                                          Hey Alec after almost 18 years I have lost my wedding band how much did it cost you in gold? I am looking for a new band and have made a ring in the past but am curious about how much you spent in gold?

                                                            Depending on the carat 30-45$ a gram. He mentioned he had a 21 gram ring so anywhere from 650 to nearly a grand in gold value alone.

                                                            out of curiosity: why not use a centre lathe?

                                                            the bigger gold chips might actually be easier to sort out this way, and the method is quicker.

                                                                            I wish for you and your soon to be wife to have a relationship stronger than any Damascus you’ve forged

                                                                                            I believe that imagination is stronger than knowledge. That myth is more potent than history. That dreams are more powerful than facts. That hope always triumphs over experience. That laughter is the only cure for grief. And I believe that love is stronger than death.
                                                                                            We fell in love, despite our differences, and once we did, something rare and beautiful was created. For me, love like that has only happened once, and that's why every minute we spent together has been seared in my memory. I'll never forget a single moment of it.
