Simple Hammered Rings

Simple Hammered Rings - student project

I decided to make these out of bronze wire to practice before making them from silver.  I am happy the solder seam doesn't show.  Making the rings was not difficult, but they all seemed to "grow" during the texturing stage.  I tried not to hammer too hard, but the rings are definitely slightly larger than the size I was trying to make.  Should I cut them slightly smaller in the future?

Thanks for another great class.  I am looking forward to making the Sea Waves ring!
