Silver and Tourmaline Stud Earrings
Reticulated Silver and Tourmaline earringsRef. ME22 From £103 Silver, £187 Gold
I make these earrings by reticulating silver sheet, cutting it to the shape I require then soldering the stone setting to the surface. Finally I add handmade ear pins and polish the piece before setting the Tourmalines in to the silver or gold.
The yellow tourmalines make me think of a sun rising over a monolith standing stone. The pale turquoise ones are like sea lapping at the sand.
Reticulation is a process of heating and ‘pickling’ the sterling silver a number of times until the pure silver has come to the surface. Consequently, the silver starts to melt and run into beautiful forms reminiscent of sand moulded by water on beaches as the tide goes out.
