Mokume Green Topaz & Pearl Ring in Sterling Silver
Julie has been working with silver & copper Mokume for several years. The woodgrain look in the metal is created by having 22 alternating layers of silver and copper then the metal is sliced. Julie buys it in flat sheets to make rings, earrings and pendants.
The Mokume is about 9.5mm, the evergreen topaz is 3.0mm and mounted in a bezel. For an added attraction, Julie used a 7.5mm pearl with brown tones.
The handmade, hammered sterling ring is size 6.75
