Ah Yes, a ring that was too big now needs to be cut down, soldered and slightly reshaped so that it can fit a size 5.5 or 6. It was a 6.5/7. Welp, below you will see the start of this reshaping.
Ever since I picked up soldering, I've been wanting to do many different things. And I've always wanted to know how people make rings smaller or bigger depending on their finger size.
I began the soldering of this ring by first cutting it in two different places. I took a small bit of sterling silver out of the ring itself. I then got a bit of solder, heated it into a little ball, and then applied it to the space that needed to be put back together. I had to hold the ring with pliers, squeeze it together, apply the solder paste and soldering material, and watch it do the trick. It took 7 tries.
The trick is, once the solder is hot, it melts, moves and reshapes, so you have to get it fast enough so the stuff does not fall onto the ground or anywhere you don't want it. So it took me 7 tries to finally get it to where I needed it. I heated my tool to about 240. The picture below shows the ring with the soldering material on it. I will do my best (if i don't forget), to update you on the final product. Thank you for your continued support.
