Riveted Quad Ring (abilities: drilling, riveting & ending)
I selected two 4mm-wide rings for this design. The rivets that I used have been huge and so I wanted the floor area to drill 2mm holes. The width of the 2 bands saved the piece good and durable when it was completed.

Solder this all at one time utilizing medium solder. I dropped one piece in the course of the tube bezel after which one tiny piece between the surface of the tube bezel and the structured circle on all sides.
Cleaning this one was a little bit trickier than the others since I wished to only clear the circle with out damaging the satin end on the ring band. To do that, I used a tough horsehair brush, adopted by a medium goat/horse hair brush after which polish on a gentle goat hair brush.

After dipping it in Liver of Sulfur, I used 3M radial brushes by skimming them alongside the highest the other way of the wooden grain so the comb ideas wouldn’t have the ability to attain the imprints. I adopted that step with polish on a flat felt wheel to realize a pleasant shine.
