todays ring is made from nickel and copper. i love using my hydraulic press, really need to use it more than i do. the copper portion of this ring was formed with the press over an acrylic mold that i carved. i had made the mold years ago for some earrings and spoons. the band has the word amour stamped on it. took this photo of mikey tonight, he is now weighing in at 16.9 pounds. he's a handsome hunk of love! my sugar kitten is sitting on my lap and one of my hands right now so am typing this one handed!
