Sterling silver with copper disc - the copper disc is highly polished to a mirror finish I then use a technique "reticulation" which involves heating the silver taking it to melting point. While the silver is in semi liquid form I use a pic to form design and texture in the silver before it solidifies and fuses with the copper. This process may be repeated a number of times before the desired texture or design is achieved. I then use many different polishing techniques to achieve the final finish on the piece. This process allows for amazing textures and designs making every jewellery piece unique.
This pendant inspired by jelly fish - I shaped the copper disc to allow the light reflect differently on every part of the surface then polish the silver to give the beautiful contrast to the design. The shape of the design gives the feeling of the piece floating upon the waves.
Copper disc diameter: 25mm
