Reticulated Silver Earrings
These earrings feature 3/4" discs of sterling silver that have been reticulated to reveal texture and movement. The process of reticulation heats the silver to just barely below the melting point, at which time, the metal begins to move just a bit, leaving behind unique patterns and even beginning to curl the edges leading to unique and one-of-a-kind shapes. No two discs will ever be exactly alike.
Then, patina is applied to darken the surface and gently hand polished away to leave the high spots shiny and reveal the texture beneath.
These earrings feature my handmade sterling silver earwires, with a small ball ornamentation for extra "pop."
They are swingy and fun while also being classic. Not too big, not too small. But, they will get noticed!
Please note the length in the picture. The earrings will hang about 1 3/4" from the earlobe when worn.
The earrings will come packaged in my signature handmade cloth pouch, perfect for gifting. I hope you love your new earrings!
Caring for your new jewelry is easy. The best way to care for it, is to wear it!! Jewelry that is worn tarnishes more slowly, so wear and enjoy.
Should you notice a bit of tarnish, you may use a Sunshine Cloth or any other dry polish cloths. Please avoid any pastes or liquids when polishing. If you have a piece with stones, please note that anything liquid or paste may harm the stones or discolor them.
If trying to sanitize, sterling silver jewelry may be wiped gently with alcohol. Avoid rubbing alcohol on the stones - I can't guarantee the results. Please also avoid using bleach on sterling silver, as it will turn black. If it does, a polish with a Sunshine cloth will have it good as new!!
