I have an odd silver cross that I had made about eight years ago for an old friend of mine that brings up really bad memories for both of us. We decided we'd like to melt the cross down and make a ring or two out of it. This seems like it should be a fairly simple process for some smith, unfortunately I am not, and I am not in contact with the original artist.
Could anyone explain the process of making a simple silver band to me or refer me to a good beginners manual for doing so? Thanks in advance.

Check out the web site for the Society of American Silversmiths at Although we try to answer all queries here, technical questions such as yours might be better addressed there. Please let us know what you find out, though!
