cocoon and black pearl ring join the Silky Collection today

A half cut cocoon and a 6mm black pearl are mounted on top of this handmade sterling silver ring. The cocoon I used is the one that produces pure tussah silk (wild silk). It has been sanitized, and treated in a special way so it's hard, neat and clean enough for jewelry making. The treatment I used allows the cocoon to remain its natural attractive color, particularly the rich creamy sheen of the silk.

Materials: cocoon, pearl, sterling silver
Ring size: US size 7-1/4 (UK size O)
Color: silky white, black, silver

PLAY & WIN beautiful gifts in EPL First GIVEAWAY!!! (I'm one of the honoured sponsers)

* The philoshopy of this game is mutual promotion! Using the "share" option that is almost everywhere on FB we can spread an item we like to our friends in real time with just one click! If one of our friends likes it and clicks the "share" button too, the item we picked for sharing will immediately appear on the wall of our friend, where it will be seen by all of their friends who may also like to play the game, and so on... Imagine how quickly an item will be seen by hundreds or thousands of people who may not even know the person who made it - and all this for FREE!
