Textured Silver Swirls & Spheres Necklace All Handmade Reticulated Sterling
This handmade textured Sterling Silver Necklace is truly one of a kind. I've fused the fine silver bits and spheres onto the Sterling to form abstract scenes 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.
This pendant measures 1 3/16" long. It is 3/4" wide. The metals used are 16 gauge thick Sterling Silver and Fine Silver bits and spheres. All the metalwork is done by my hands. This hangs on a 19" Sterling Silver chain.
