scrap decorated ring.

My next attempt at a ring, actually two, now that I had the basic soldering skills down.
I had all of these little pieces left over, just scraps, and wanted to see if I could make a passable ring.
So I basically just filled the space and soldered them down.
Then banged it into a ring shape on the mandrel

 I was a little scared with what it looked like.  Those are the products of combustion and cupric what-evers from getting it very hot
Once it had soaked in the pickle it looked somewhat better.
I made a just round one too.

 Not great, and looking back.... I'm still fairly proud because of the attention to detail, but not my best work.  creative, so okay.
