Leaf-textured ring

Create a metal clay ring with a comfort-fit band

This ring design presents some fun challenges. One is smoothing the seam without distorting the delicate leaf pattern, then getting the pattern to be consistent across that seam. A lap join creates the seam, and with a bit of clay and a few tools, the leaf pattern looks like it was never interrupted. Another challenge is getting the sizing just right.
