Finally finished up a repair job I've been working on; a simple gold band that needed to be re-enameled. It wasn't a difficult repair, but it was a little nerve wracking. I've never enameled gold before, and in addition to belonging to someone else, this piece is also quite old. But I just got word from the client yesterday, and he was quite happy with the results.
