I reticulate the sterling silver myself, and love it for its one of a kind texture. The reticulation process consists of heating & quenching the sterling silver numerous times in order to build up a layer of fine silver on the surface. This leaves a copper core, which has a different melting temperature than the fine silver layer. The end result is the buckling on the surface. Despite using the same technique, each piece will always have a completely unique pattern. I hope you love it as much as I do!
