STERLING SILVER RETICULATED HEART EARRINGS
Lovely reticulated sterling silver hearts on a sterling hook. Handmade in Victoria BC by Judith Hirczy.
Reticulation involves heating the silver up to 10 times to oxidise the copper at the surface. This produces a textured surface with the controlled heating. This method was developed in Czarist Russia where jewelrs such as Faberge used this technique.
Heart size:1.0 inch.
