    Smelt Your Own Ring

    All metals also fatigue from overworking. You can usually hear a difference in the sound when it is about to break. Just heat it back up, don't let it melt (I have experience working copper and silver so I look for a cherry glow, but Zinc melts before it glows so be careful) and let it cool for a couple of hours. By annealing it like that regularly you will avoid fracture.
