Making a Ring

I decided recently that I would make a ring. I have made one ring before, but it was a flower one very different to my new idea.
I decided to design a ring that I would cut out with a piercing saw. I played with lots of ideas and designs before settling on one.

I did a test run also, which took me a lot of time and had a few problems- mainly some weak points that needed to be stronger (which I took into consideration the next time round).

Here is my final design that I drew out into my notebook.

I then drew this on to the aluminium sheet and began cutting it out with a piercing saw.

This is my ring once all cut out and roughly filed.
