Hand Made Mokume Leaf Ring on Sterling Silver
Mokume is a Japanese word that means "tree eye metal" - a reference to the wood like appearance of the metal. It is made by putting alternating layers of metals under high heat and pressure and then slicing the metal. Julie uses copper/sterling silver mokume she buys in sheets. She cuts and forms the metal into shapes.
In honor of Fall in Michigan, Julie cut some leaves from Mokume and put one of them on this sterling ring - size 8.25
