Reticulated Silver Hoops

Silver

Sold

Reticulation is a process of heating and 'pickling' the sterling silver a number of times until the pure silver has come to the surface. Consequently, the silver starts to melt and run into beautiful forms reminiscent of sand moulded by water on beaches as the tide goes out.

Using her Granddad's old workshop tools, each piece she makes shows the marks of process and the beauty of form, reflecting the patterns of nature the outline shapes of rocky outcrops, the surface patterns made by hammers like the texture of stone, small spurs of silver and gold to replicate the growth patterns of lichens.
