#1407 Venus Ring

#1406 my interpretation of an ancient Greek ring from 350 BC, Aphrodite playing with a bird, her clothes on a pillar, being presented a wreath by Eros.


Unfortunately I will not be able to achieve this level of detail in my gold inlays for the foreseeable future, they are not traditional inlay, what I did was engrave out the silver and then used the laser welder to fill the cavity with gold which I was then able to engrave and sculpt. It was fun, but shortly after finishing my laser welder ate the dust.... Oh well, the guys 2500 years ago didn't need one to do gorgeous work!
