Reticulated Discs ~ Each One It’s Own Reticulation Pattern
The reticulated discs that make up these solid sterling silver earrings are a little like a science project. Small. Dainty. Fascinating. Project question: How much heating can one disc of silver take before it passes out? Come to find out, quite a bit. And pass out, it does. I love the crinkles and wrinkles that develop with repeated heating and cooling. These reticulated discs are highly reflective and light on the ears They would make a great companion piece for pretty much everything in your closet. Plainly fancy, or fancifully plain? An oxymoron no matter how you slice it. These are fabulous go-to earrings when you aren’t quite sure what is on the agenda for the day ahead.
Much like most experiments, each disc is wrinkled and crinkled in a slightly different manner.
I used sterling silver sheet 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.
