152/365 4 gauge sterling

Laurie Brown* very generously sent me a long piece of 4 gauge wire (which is just over 1/4 inch thick and very hard to form) so that I could attempt to make a ring with it, as she so skillfully did for her RAD #82. I have soldered it closed 3 times, and it keeps busting open on the mandrel. I am not giving up.

Here is Laurie's* beautiful ring, she started with the 4 gauge (5mm) and stretched it to 14 gauge (1.6 mm). She is GOOD.
