Copper Abalone

About this design:

I hand make my copper rings, but I love the rainbow effects of Abalone and when I put the two together it was a match!


Copper, Abalone, sterling silver wire

    I think this is infectious. I love it. May I ask? What is meant by “Copper green opal”? It sounds delicious. Like an ice cream or a glaze.

    Wonderful combo of metalwork and abalone. I think the confusion is that when typing in the components box, when you list copper, there’s an automatic ‘fill-in’ with copper green opal that you can’t remove. I usually have to write ‘copper wire’ to get it replaced. Not sure if anyone else have advice on how to deal with this problem.
    Regardless, this is a beautiful piece of jewelry!

    Hi all,
    You are right, I did not mean to put copper green opal, just copper! then abalone and sterling silver. I did not notice it and I do not think you can edit your postings…that would be a nice option.

    FYI-I have changed my design posts before by going to my design, then edit my design. I have changed photos and descriptions. The only thing I don’t think you can edit are comment posts.

    BTW- I like your copper rings more and more each time I browse the designs, really awesome work. :D

    Thank you for the nice comments. The copper rings are cold forged because I am too lazy to solder!

    I never thought of pairing abalone with copper, but from the looks of it in this photo, it really goes well. I may have to try some. I really like rings, so this caught my eye. It’s very artsy. Love it :)
