Textured Silver Rectangular Flower Earrings Fused & Reticulated All Handmade
These handmade textured Silver Rectangular Flower earrings are truly one of a kind. I've fused the pieces onto the Sterling to form a flower while also texturing the silver. These earrings are a great for any occasion and made with Love.
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 abstractly fused fine silver flowers to the sterling.
These earrings measures 2 1/4" long from the top the ear wire to the bottom of the earring. They are 1/2" wide. The metals used are Sterling Silver and Fine Silver. All of the metalwork is done by my hands.
