  • Reticulation is a technique that creates a wonderful texture, but it’s a contrary one! I take sheet sterling silver, heating and quenching a dozen times, which depletes the surface of the copper within the sterling alloy.


    After the final quench I heat the silver again, melting the now pure silver layer, until I get the effict I want. It is very much the cheese-on-toast method of creating jewellery, and just like toasting cheese, blink for a second and there’s disaster!!


    I made a pair of these from a failed bangle attempt and wore them on holiday, to a lunch and then a conference. At each event someone asked if I was stocking them yet.

    So, here’s a range.


    See the final photo for the difference in the surfaces, and remember that, as with all my jewellery, no two pairs will be identical because not only am I sawing and filing them by hand, I’m also playing with fire to create the texture


    I saw the squares to approximately 10mm, and they have a drop (from piercing) of approximately 53mm to the bottom and 20mm in the earwire. The 'moons' are about 17mm in diameter.

    As always, if I'm making a pair especially for you, then I can adjust these elements, or use Argentium for the earwires.


    Please factor in about a week for me to make a special pair just for you.


    As with all my jewellery, they are fully recycled sterling silver


    These aren’t hallmarked as they are well below the legal assay weight of 7.78g
