Experimenting with new techniques!

My first scheduled show is in March so I am taking this time to design new jewelry and try out a few interesting techniques. Since I have been working with Sterling flatware in some of my designs, I have a bit of silver left over to play with.

I decided to try a version of reticulation, the process of creating a textured surface using a torch to bring the metals to a high temperature. 

Here are some of my first attempts!

Stay tuned for my upcoming spring and early summer show schedule!
