Bronze and sterling silver frame this elegant, tapered cabochon of native copper by Gary Wilson. It was love at first sight when I saw this beautiful one-of-a-kind stone, with its bright metallic copper embedded in a soft desert green matrix. The earthy, understated hues have a quiet drama to them.

I created a setting for it with lines that evoke distant mesas on a long horizon, with the stone resting on a bronze backing that is in turn backed with heavy sterling silver. The silhouette is refined but organic and warm, like a drive through the high desert country of Northern Arizona or New Mexico.

The adjustable shank is also heavy sterling silver which has been hammered on desert rock for texture. The ring size is approximately a 7 right now, but can easily go down to a 6 1/2 or up to a 7 1/2 as needed.

All of the metal in my rings is worked using the simplest tools. Everything is sawed, filed, sanded and polished entirely by hand. This gives the metalwork a warmth and livingness to it that cannot be duplicated with machine-made pieces. This ring received a deep charcoal grey patina and was buffed up to a satiny finish.

Like a piece of the landscape for your finger...beautiful, strong desert lines.

SIZE:  The ring size is 6 1/2 to 7 1/2.   to 2" x 3/4" x 5/16", or 50mm x 19mm x 6mm.

CARE:    Wash in cool water; a little mild soap is probably ok. The metal may be polished with a silver polishing cloth to brighten, or buff it with a dry kitchen scrubbing pad for a matte finish.

PRESENTATION:  Mesa Horizon will arrive beautifully giftwrapped.  See the shop policies below for details.
