Just a few photos around shop of new pieces in various stages of completion.  This first is welding an 18ky disc to a sheet of argentium.  The solder is on the outer ridges, I heat the piece from the middle and it all flows under the disc, forming a solid bond.

Once a disc is soldered to the sheet I cut off the excess and file it smooth around the edges.  Below is a Mokume disc being filed.

A collection of discs, gold, copper, mokume, and argentium.  

Using a dapping block and wooden dapping tools to form the domes.

All finished!!  Ready to become earrings and rings.
