Project Description

Your project for this class is to create a piece of reticulated silver and then use it to create a beautiful item of jewellery. You can choose to create a dainty star pendant as I have, a larger pendant or even a pair of earrings - it's your choice!

A couple of design points though..... if you want to create a larger piece of jewellery you will need to start with a thicker piece of silver sheet otherwise your finished jewellery will not be strong enough. Also, reticulated silver is not as easy to shape as non-reticulated silver and can be brittle. Until you get more confident with this technique it is best to stick with flat designs. A video class showing you how to shape reticulated silver easily is coming soon!
