This silver pendant is created using the ancient technique called reticulation. The colour is the result of the particular treatment I gave to the surfaces and to the composition of the alloy which creates a strong contrast between the shiny pure silver and the dark colour given by the oxidation of the higher copper content present in the alloy. Since the jewel is handcrafted the final product may differ slightly from the picture. Each jewel is shipped in its packaging. Handmade in Florence.
