Reticulated Silver and Turquoise Earrings

in: Earrings



Reticulated Silver and Turquoise Earrings - Reticulation is a technique of producing a ridged or ripply surface on sterling silver through controlled heating. I used this technique to provide the texture (that I crave!) for these earrings.  The surface reminds me of the moon!  Once reticulated, I hand sawed an oval shape, and added a sweet little 4mm Sleeping Beauty Turquoise cabochon for added interest. I then wired, with sterling silver, three blue turquoise discs, flanked with ornate sterling silver flat beads, to the bottom of the earring.  This addition really makes the turquoise pop in these drop earrings!

These sterling silver earrings measure approximately 1 7/8" in length from the top of the sterling silver ear wire to the bottom of the earring. These are comfortable, swingy earrings that will make every outfit that much more special!

All metals used in this design are .925 sterling silver.

Jewelry is made using traditional metalworking techniques, including soldering, filing, sanding, texturing, polishing, and tumbling in my home studio. Jewelry comes wrapped in a cotton-lined gift box and ships quickly. Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
