This Claddagh ring, a traditional Irish wedding ring found by a customer, was brought in to be recycled into something new she could wear herself.
After deciding to go with a simple heart ring, the alteration process began by removing the silver heart, hands and crown. The hands and crown were recycled by melting them down and reusing the silver to solder and reshape the original band. The silver heart was then soldered back onto the ring to create the new ring.
