Textured Flower Silver Bracelet Adjustable All Handmade Reticulated Sterling Size 7 7/8"
This bracelet is made up of abstract shapes of Sterling Silver that I've fused pieces of Fine Silver onto to form flowers and other scenes, while also texturing the silver. This bracelet is one of a kind and is really comfortable to wear! This is also adjustable with 3 jump rings to choose a size from.
The reticulation process is where you take big flame (torch) and heat the metal (in this case Sterling Silver) 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 also abstractly fused fine silver flowers to the sterling.
This bracelet measures 7 7/8" long. The pieces vary in size from 1 3/8", 1 1/4" & 1"in length. The widths are 1", about 3/4" & 1/2". The metals used are Sterling Silver and Fine Silver. All of the metalwork is done by my hands.
