50/365 shibuichi

I have been experimenting with shibuichi, a Japanese alloy of silver and copper, and I am in love. It is extremely hard, etches like a dream, and is made from 100% recycled metal like the sterling that I use. I have etched it with my fish skeleton pattern and soldered it to a sterling silver base, another design for my growing Elements Collection.

I like the way these post-set pieces float above the ring band.
