Reticulated silver is a process of heating sterling silver, which has a very small amount of copper in it, until the copper, which has a lower melting point than silver, becomes concentrated and liquifies. The silver forms a sort of skin around the copper, which creates random patterns on the surface of the metal. The patterns are random.
I’ve blackened the silver so that the texture of the surface is more dramatic. In the middle of the bead/pendant is a garnet set in a shadowbox design. The garnet is set so that light can pass through.
Entirely hand-fabricated (hand-crafted). One of a kind. 3/4″ diameter, 1/4 inch deep. Signed on the back.
A blend of silver, copper, and brass brushed mokume surrounded by brushed silver make up this shadowbox pendant. Elegant and understated. Over time, the color of the copper will shift adding interest to the piece.
May be worn alone as a pendant, or strung with beads.
Entirely hand-crafted, one-of-a-kind. Hollow form. Signed on the back. 3/4 inch diameter, 1/4 inch deep.
Beautiful blue sky turquoise emerges from earthy hand-hammered silver in this gorgeous piece. Soft play of light flickers on the surface of the silver while the attention is drawn toward the turquoise in the center.
May be worn alone as a single pendant or with beads.
Modern usage of the classic hollow form shadowbox design. Very contemporary.
Entirely hand-crafted. 3/4 inch diameter, 1/4 inch deep. Signed on the back.
