mitsuro necklace with south sea pearls
This rather elaborate necklace was a daring experiment in casting Mitsuro directly over a metal armature. When casting one precious metal over another, the heat exchange can be so extreme that the gold tubing used could have simply evaporated.
Mitsuro overcast in sterling silver on 14k yellow gold tubing, diamonds, Tahitian "South Sea" pearls.
