Mixed Metal Brooch with Pyrite "From The Tree Tops"
This labor intensive distinctive brooch features an enchanting Marcasite stone with floating layers. The stone is set in fine silver with a base of darkened sterling silver. 'Mountains' of hand sawn fine silver line one edge with 'bridges' of Mokume gane (copper/silver woodgrain) on another while a ridge of textured sterling finishes the other. Fine silver balls add dimension as well. An interesting piece for anything neutral in your wardrobe from a suit jacket to jazzing up your winter coat!
