Reticulation Silver

Once upon a time I had promised to photograph a sterling silver ring I was working on because it had a reticulation silver accent. This little number was part of a series I was exploring whose concept was based loosely around the Meiji Shrine gates in Tokyo. Sterling silver, reticulation silver, and resin.

Have you ever had an idea, a really FANTASTIC idea, that after a few rounds of experimentation (mixed together with a whole lot of excitement and effort) kind of falls flat? The result is “fine”, like when you get a morning coffee but really want a cappuccino. There is nothing wrong with the result, and actually your friends like it, but you just can’t take the idea further. So, instead of muscling through this quandary to the MOST AMAZING piece, you burn out. I’m having one of those weeks. Sigh.

The great news is that I am SUPER excited to start something new when I return to my studio on Thursday. I am looking forward to a few inspiring days on the road to get me back on track.
