4. Hammering

“Once the ring is on the mandrel, I am able to use a goldsmiths hammer to see quick results. As I am hammering on the ring, I pull the ring tighter on the mandrel to restore its round shape.” [source]

7. Improvements

“It is important to note that filing removes a bit of material from the ring. I wanted to make sure that thinning was minimized, so filing was only used for scratches and dings that were not very deep.” [source]
