Reticulated Pendant with Copper Heart
This delicate silver pendant with copper heart detail is textured to give an organic look by a process called reticulation. I heat the silver until the surface begins to bubble creating a lovely dimpled effect. 5cm by 0.5cm
All That Glitters
Hello everyone, my name is Joanne Bennett and I’m a silver jewellery designer based in Wiltshire in the UK. I work with sterling silver using heat and texture to create unusual and one of a kind jewellery with interesting designs. I’ve always loved the textures and shapes that can be found in nature, which is why I use them to inspire my work. I was always coming home from family holidays with buckets full of pebbles and shells and my workshop is full of driftwood and fossils which I use to influence the jewellery that I make. I enjoy working with silver because of the way the silver melts and creates wonderful patterns which I can never quite predict. When I melt pieces of silver together it gives an organic, rustic, and raw feel to my jewellery. I love the free flowing nature of the process and the surprise of the finished piece, sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t but the beauty of silver is you can just melt it down and start again. I try to make each piece different in some way so that customers know they have a piece of jewellery that is unique and individual. My aim is to create jewellery that is unusual which is why I use reticulation and oxidisation to give the silver texture and to make each piece different from the one before. All pieces are hallmarked where necessary so you can be confident it’s genuine silver. Please feel free to contact me if you would like a custom piece or if you have any questions or comments. I love to get feedback as it’s always nice to know that people like what I make.
