Fine Silver Hammered Bypass Ring Pebble Texture - Made to order
If you're looking for something different, this ring might be it. I use 14-gauge fine silver wire (99.9% pure silver) because the soft metal takes shape and texturing very nicely. The best way I can describe the surface of this ring is that it is "pebbled." I hammer it first to establish the shape then use a specialty hammer to achieve the detailed finish. From a couple of feet away, the silver almost looks like it has been crumpled. Up close, the pattern of individual hammer marks is visible.
After being shaped and hammered, each ring goes for a long spin in the tumbler. This both strengthens the metal and polishes the surface.
The style is a bypass ring with opposing loops with all sections of the ring hammered flat. The bypass section is approx. 1/2" across (depth of the ring). Because it's a bypass ring, it is somewhat adjustable. Note that I make to size with a slight bypass as shown in the photographs. I suggest ordering up or down 1/2 size if you want the wear the ring with a longer overlap or want the loops to sit side by side with no overlap.
I make this ring to order for whole and half sizes between 4 and 10, though I do make common sizes ahead. Either way, your ring will ship within a maximum of 5 days of placing your order. Please contact me for a price quote if you need a size larger than 10.
(If you prefer a smoother surface, please see my "Fine Silver Bypass Ring with Balls and Curls Mixed Smooth and Hammered," which is also listed in the Fine Silver section of my shop.)
As with all my items, this hammered ring comes packaged in a recycled paper jewelry box and padded mailer. First Class postage includes tracking, which I notify you of promptly after shipping. Thanks for browsing!
