Sterling silver with copper plate - the copper plate 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.
