The client liked chunky rings and had a rough model of what they wanted. There was also considerable inherited gold to add to the ring. After several discussions we decided the best method would be to cast a base ring and add elements of the other gold to the top of the ring to create the ice flow effect. These elements were made by melting mixed gold shapes and sometimes squashing them and sometimes dropping the melted gold into cold water to get the random organic shapes. The stone was set by soldering the gold shapes around the stone and then additional shapes were arranged away from the stone.
