Well, saw something today that got me thinking. A guy had the reflector from a worklight and made it into a simple lightbox. Well, I don’t have a light, but I did have a mixing bowl.

Simple lightbox

So, I tried several angles and after playing around a bit I was able to get this shot where the ring reflects.


Now I also had traded the other day an old silver quarter with a guy in Norway for this that got here just today.

It’s roughly the size of a fifty cent piece and .999 Silver. And to say that I’m a little nervous in doing it is an understatement.  If I can do it though, it should make one hell of a ring. The reason that he didn’t try it himself? He’s a newbie that has never done anything this size.
