Mountain’s Majesty – Mokume and Silver Wedding Rings

Mountain’s Majesty – Mokume and Silver Wedding Rings

Brushed silver and copper mokume combine with silver overlay and blackened silver to create rings that celebrate the beauty of the mountains here in the southwest. The copper is left raw and will deepen in color with age, just like the wild beauty of this part of the world.

I love that the mokume can either represent the layers of earth in the mountains, or can represent the swirling of the wind in the sky.

These rings are commissioned. They are one-of-a-kind, entirely hand-crafted, and are signed on the inside.

Hand-carved grooves catch light and create interesting visual patterns while revealing the nature of this hollow form silver pendant. Blackened silver on the inside of the bracelet creates depth, giving the grooves extra “punch”.

This cuff is suitable for women and men.

Married Metals Tie Clip

Married Metals Tie Clip

This piece is made of hand-hammered brushed copper and brushed silver. The metals pick up light with a soft glow. The design on this piece reminds me of the southwestern mountain landscape where I grew up.

The clip is 1 1/2 inches long by 1/4 inch wide. Signed on the back.

Married Metals Cufflinks

These cufflinks are a shadowbox hollow form made of fine silver and copper. Brushed silver has a subtle sheen that picks up the warmth of the copper. Hand-hammereing allows for evidence of the process in making these.

Traditionally, shadowbox jewelry is made with stones like turquoise. Here, I’ve used hammered married metals as the the centerpiece to the shadowbox rather than stones.

Hand-fabricated (made by hand). Due to the nature of the process, no two pieces are alike.
