 The Process Explained by C.S. Wood Crafts

🍊 "The process for opal ring making can vary depending on the design. For this design in particular It begins with the cutting of the tru-stone stock. This material will be the guide to the fabrication of the ring."

🍊 "Once it’s cut into a small square, a hole needs to be cut so that the tungsten ring core can be cemented into the material using CA glue which is very similar to an epoxy."

🍊 "Once the piece is placed within the tru-stone slab, the tungsten core can be placed on an expanding ring mandrel. By doing this, the material can be turned into many shapes using tungsten carbide turning chisels."

🍊 "After the material is smooth and cut to its desired shape, I use the same CA glue used for cementing the ring for cementing the crushed tangerine opal pieces. After they are placed, the entire ring is sanded down and polished to a very fine grit to give a stunning finish."
