Solid Silver Reticulated Pendant

Solid Silver Reticulated Pendant

I created this abstract sterling silver pendant for one of my dear besties for her birthday. Solid Silver Reticulated Pendant

I made the bottom of the pendant by heating the solid chunk of silver until it melted and became round and reticulated, and added a spiral of wire as the bail.

Flashback – Reticulated Pendant

Reticulation is a texturing which occurs when silver is heated almost to melting point. The surface of the silver shimmers and moves. It’s a fine balance between a molten surface and an unrecognisable lump! The process is very satisfying when you get it right. I created this pendant (and also the base of this ring) at the school I attended, starting with a flat straight rectangle of silver. I added the silver spheres and some stippling, with a chenier bail, et voila! 🙂
