Textured Silver Flowers Necklace All Handmade Reticulated Sterling
This handmade textured Sterling Silver Necklace is truly one of a kind. I've fused the pieces onto the Sterling to form flowers while also texturing the silver. This pendant is great for any occasion. This hangs on a 19" Sterling Chain.
The reticulation process is where you take big flame (torch) and heat the metal until it "wrinkles' and starts to get texture. It will almost be at the melting point. I've added bits of fine silver during the heating process, which fused together, to add more of a mountainous texture. In this piece I have abstractly fused fine silver flowers to the sterling.
This pendant measures 7/8" long. It is 1 1/8" wide. The metals used are 18 gauge (thickness) Sterling Silver and Fine Silver. The chain is around 19" long and is Sterling Silver. All the metalwork is done by my hands.
