Flattening a Fused Component
Once your fine silver component is fused, you can flatten it for more jewelry options.
Print this Technique
Start with a fine silver fused ring.
Place the fused ring on a bench block.
Hold the fused ring down with your finger. If you do not feel comfortable holding the fused ring with your finger, you may place a small piece of tape along the edge to keep it in place.
Using the flat, broad side of your hammer, hammer one half of your fused ring away from your finger or tape.
Move your finger or tape to the other side of the fused ring.
Hammer the remaining half of your fused ring.
Congratulations! You have now flattened a fused ring.
You may opt to use a tumbler to polish and harden your ring. Refer to our beading technique to learn how.
