New work, new ideas for 2020

I’ve decided to try a variety of different techniques and ideas throughout the year. One of my intentions is to make a statement necklace each month although I’m already a little behind as it’s February and here’s my first one.

Reticulated silver necklace 2020/1

I began by heating and picking a number of silver discs, numerous times before overheating the surface until I was satisfied with the reactions. I had to repeat the reticulation on some of the pieces to get them to a similar state. I then prepared the reverse of each piece to enable me to solder loops on before constructing a sterling silver chain. I have three extra discs that I’ll use to make a matching ring and earrings.

Work in progress

If you’d like to try this or another jewellery making technique then please contact me. I run classes here in my studio in Hunmanby by arrangement and do have dates available. They can be single or multiple days or half day sessions over a few weeks.
