Blue Sapphire, 18ct gold and reticulated Sterling silver bar brooch. The smooth sheet of silver was heated, quenched and put through sulphuric acid a dozen times, then finally overheated. At that stage the surface of the metal spontaneously wrinkles up in an uncontrolled way. No two pieces can be the same. The pice was then trimmed to final shape, and the gold applied. It was then darkened in a heated sulphur solution, cleaned and the stones set.
