Grabbing the Brass Ring

14 gauge gold brass wire ring.

I found inspiration in a vintage 60’s Taxco Mexico silver ring.

It started as a large closed loop; was bent and hammered and then sized on a mandrel.  Maybe not exactly in that order.   To be fair, I needed a rolling mill to take the wire down thinner and wider.  Brass is surprising fluid and very much “alike” to gold.  It will acquire a patina and needs a lemon juice rinse or a tarnish cloth treatment once in a while.
