Hobo Ring How It's Made

I've been asked how the Hobo Ring's made and if that is a real nickel I use on them. So here you go, here's how they're made. But why show all this? There's no secret, an experienced jeweler could figure it all out. What you don't see is years of just making stuff and learning. There are literally hundreds of hours playing and working out ideas, always learning. There's also hundreds of dollars of material quite literally melted as I learned. So when you get something from me, you're getting something I've learned how to make by trial and error. You're also getting a handmade ring by me right here in downtown Atlanta. Everything I do is with raw materials, nothing is pre-made, well except the nickel but give me a fucking break.
