All of the artists at the gallery make what they create because they love the processes of it. Marilyn Clayton wanted to explain this process.
The cuff bracelet pictured is a good example of Reticulation in Sterling Silver. This process is one of Marilyn’s faves as it uses one of her favourite tools, a torch!!
The flat piece of silver is super-heated past red hot and just before melting. What this does is get the copper that is in the sterling silver liquefying and moving around inside the sterling sheet. This forms to patterns seen in this bracelet which looks and kind of feels, like leather.
