Oxidized Silver & Turquoise "North America" Ring
This Turquoise with black matrix ring resembles a map of North America! The stone is set in fine silver on a base of sterling silver. Hand cut 'mountains' in fine silver follow one edge while a barrier of patterned silver arcs across the other. Fine silver balls and a small triangle of Mokume gane add interest within the piece. This piece has been antiqued (blackened) to bring out the depth. The tapered band was hand made and rolled with a pattern. It is adjustable in that it is springy and moves to accomodate finger sizes throughout the day, etc. It could be made slightly larger permanently if needed.
