Wendy’s Curl Ring – Step 4: Forging The Wire

Wendy’s Curl Ring – Step 4: Forging The Wire

What’s on the bench – following the story of Wendy’s rings – step 4: forming the wire for the new ring band!

The yellow strip in this image is Wendy’s 18ct yellow gold – doesn’t look like much just now!!

It has been melted into an ingot and has been ‘milled’ into a length of square wire. Now I’m starting to form it into the shape I need to make up the new ring band!!

This process is called forging and again is all done by hand with a mixture of rollers and hammers. It’s pretty physical work – means I don’t need to go to the gym!!
