Sterling silver with copper plates - the copper plates are 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 love - Croí (heart) is one of the most recognisable symbols of love. Love for another person, love for nature our surroundings our planet. this piece is two hearts fused together becoming one. this signifies the love between two people a bond that can last a lifetime. I have laid one heart into the other signifying the beginning of the journey through life together, the time when everything is new and exciting with the promise of a life together.
