This big rocket actually looks good on the big finger it's heading for.
I let too much time go by since the last chased/repoussed ring I did,
so I'm relearning, and probably making some horrible mistakes with this one,
but I"ll pull it out. It will be fine, and the next one will not suffer so much.
I don't know if there is an easy way to roll the edges on something like this.
It seems to take time, and patience due to having to reposition it in the pitch
which sort of backs out of it's job of fully supporting the metal...but I kept at it. I've shortened the ends to what I believe should be the proper size/length.
The ends are filed and meet tightly enough that no light gets through.
I expect a successful soldering on Wednesday.
