Damascus Ring

Silver and steel

After finishing my first damascus cabochon ring, I was commissioned to make another similar ring by the very talented Shane Maxwell. (Go visit his Etsy, seriously: www.etsy.com/shop/ShaneMaxwell)

I think the faceted cabochon on this ring turned out a lot better than the first; I made a new billet specifically for projects like these, and I was a lot more experienced with faceting steel at this point. (The pattern of this billet is known as “Gordian Knot” by those in the knife-making trade.)
