First Work in Progress post

The photo shows two works in progress. The narrower ring is made from 3 mm x 2 mm D-shaped silver wire. It is a warm-up piece to help me get used to soldering again. It needs a bit more work with wet and dry paper before tumble polishing. I am planning to make a stack of rings, and this will be one of the set. The wider ring was started several months ago, but I had difficulty soldering on the setting for a cabochon, and melted the surface. I have come back to it and am tidying up the damage. I'm thinking about omitting the stone and adding a hammered texture to the surface.
