Framed Reticulated Discs ~ Silver Surrounded by Silver
The framed reticulated disc that are the feature piece of these silver earrings look like old coins dug up from long ago. Yet another science experiment in how much heating can sterling silver take before it passes out? Come to find out, more than you would imagine. And still and all, it passes out! I love the crinkles and wrinkles that develop with repeated heating and cooling. I soldered hammered sterling silver rings to the ‘antiqued coins’ to create a framed treasure experience. Lightweight and flirty, the framed silver discs make quite a statement.
I used sterling silver sheet, sterling silver wire and argentium silver wire to create these earrings. Once assembled they were tumbled for a couple of hours to harden the silver and brighten its finish.
