DiResta: Maker Ring

“We are the Makers of Music & The Dreamers of Dreams”

One of my favorite movies is Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory and as a kid it was always a must-watch whenever it was playing. Even now, from time to time I watch scenes on youtube.

I wanted to demo the simple process of making a ring with with stamped type on it and this was a perfect quote to use. The ring is made of brass and the letter stamps are found on line. The solder I used was silver solder found at any jewelry supply. I plan to use this as the model for a silver casting.

This quote was originally from the opening line of the poem “Ode” by Arthur O’Shaughnessy.
