Wax Jewelry

My silver casting supplies arrived in the mail this week! 
I am in love with casting grain.
 A wax ring on my new scale. I am planning to cast a series of silver rings that are real watercolor palettes.
A tiny Marx.

Now I just need somewhere to work, and a few things from Home Depot. I spent a lovely day mining a pile of jewelry reference books for techniques and ideas. I discovered electroforming, and decided I don't care for enamel so much. My current project is to make 6oz of sterling charms and rings and offer them for sale, but in CA I have a tiny anvil and I would love to stretch and hammer silver bars into... forks? Hairpins?

It's been 3 days since you planned on making this wax ring into sterling ring. So, have you finished it? I can't wait to see it on sale in the market. Can you update us about this? I want to see how you made it.
