European 4-1 Sleeve Ring by brumagem European 4-1 Sleeve Ring by brumagem
I used the mistakes I learned from the last ring to make something even better! =D

1. Made sure every ring was completely closed so as not to stab the finger.

2. Stick to basic trims for now, like doubling outer links. (so much less time consuming)

3. Stretch the sheet taut to conserve rings.

4. Don't be afraid to re-size later; better late than a tourniquet.

20g 1/8 stainless, 164 rings, five hours.

EDIT: I should probably mention I offer cheap commissions, just note me!

do you use surgical stainless so it doesn't have nickle for those of use who are allergic?

I used alloy 304 stainless on this one, so there's nickel in there. I could probably get my hands on some surgical stainless if I had to ;)

Well done! I would advise saw cut rings for finer pieces like this though. Once you go sawcut- you'l never go back!

You sound like you're selling something =D Anyway, yeah I've really noticed it with the bigger rings in my last two pieces. But it costs a more and I don't think it impacts the quality as long as you're careful about closing with small rings. I guess I really should splurge for the larger rings at least :P

it really does impact the quality on finer metals. Not selling- just a fellow artistan :)

Just jokin' about the sellin' part ^^; I just think I should focus more on craftsmanship rather than the quality of the materials at the moment.
