Jewelry Design, Weeks 4 and 5

The progress of rolling more wire to make rings is a bit tedious, however, the finished design doesn't look machine-made. It almost looks like archaic Greek jewelry with less bells and whistles. Measurements for each piece has to be predetermined (i.e. you want to set a gem, and what type of setting: gypsy, bezel or pave) and exact (i.e. sizing). I measured for a size 7, but was two sizes short because I used a different ruler that didn't have millimeters, so I had to start all over again. Some people who were creating bezels went too thin (e.g. like paper), and had to start over again as well. After taking this class, I really appreciate wire, lol.
