New Work

moissanite wedding bandMoissanite, recycled 14k yellow gold, and sterling silver ring, size 6.5
{ to be listed soon in my Etsy shop }

This is a pretty simple design, but one that's been bouncing around in my head for a while. At first the whole ring was 14k gold, but the more I looked at it, the more compelled I felt to make it look more organic and antique, so ultimately I decided to melt some sterling silver solder all around and in between the bezels, which I then oxidized to give the piece a blackened, 'ancient' kind of feel. I'm not completely sure how I feel about the finished effect; I'm curious to hear what you all think... does the oxidized silver add or detract from this design?

It's a little hard to see clearly in the photos, but I think I like it, too. My first reaction to seeing the first pic was "what a beautiful ring." I'd like to see it in person some time.
