Ring base and stone

First, we learn to create a ring with a claw setting.

The base of a ring can be made with either wax or metal smithing techniques.

It’s a good learning experience to see the difference in the two working methods.

When you have your ring base, and stone, we move to the engraving table where we use a magnifying glass or a stereoscopic microscope to set the stone, holding it in a ring vice.

湯床吹きは、金属合金を溶解して作成するための日本の伝統的な技術です。  アケ型で鋳造するよりも高品質の合金が得られると考えられています。  溶けた金属を熱水に鋳造すると表面酸化物の形成が減少し金属の冷却速度が遅くなり  これがインゴットの良好な加工特性に寄与すると考えられています。
