The Moon

This is Francesco's silver Moon ring... and it is one of my favourite commissions ever - Francesco just said  he wanted a ring of his very own and this is what he got. Lucky Francesco! You can't buy this exact one becuase it is exclusively his. He is rather happy about that. But I reckon I can make a similar one if you ask nicely.

Below is the prototype, the only change was to the main crater which Francesco thought was too volcanic looking. You can also see how it looks in wax form, after my carving and filing. The blue wax for the base of the ring is made from a hard tube of jewellery wax. And, of course, I used wax from some cheese to give the craters extra Moon-like qualities.
