The verdict

Here's the follow up to my post about putting a patterned surface inside a concave shape. Method A is my preference. The sample attached to the ring on the right of these photos is the Method A result. Each sample is about 25 mm long.

Method A involved hammering with a ball hammer inside the shape. This has given a stronger pattern than the inside-out planishing from Method B.

The planished back side on piece A is slightly less shiny than it was before hammering, but it still looks quite interesting. The plain back side of piece B is, I think, just a little too plain.
