Reticulation is created by heating the Sterling Silver up to almost melting point. There is a moment in time when the surface is molten but the underneath still has structure. You can use the flame to move the surface around to create a wonderful rippled texture. Although practice with the flame gives you some amount of control over the finish, a lot of it comes down to chance, and therefore no two will ever be the same - including your pair!
These earrings are made for somebody who finds beauty from imperfection, who appreciates texture and organic design, and for the person who likes to have something a little different :)
The reticulated disk measures around 20mm in diameter, and the drop from your piercing measures around 38mm.
