Rosaleen

DESCRIPTION

Rosaleen means beautiful, little rose.

Reticulation, the technique that I used to create Rosaleen,  is an amazing technique to bring unique texture on silver and gold.

Reticulation usually involves heating a sheet of gold or silver alloy up to 10 times to oxidize the copper at the surface, and then texture it through controlled heating. The result is looking like a moonscape or a relief map of the Sierra Nevada. In indirect light, the ridges of reticulation cast shadows, like those thrown by mountains in the late afternoon sun. And just as mountain shadows change with the shifting sun, the shadows on a reticulated surface shift as the wearer moves.

DETAILS & FIT

  • 60 by 40mm of reticulated surface framed with thick square silver wire.
