Heavens Above Blue Star Sapphire Brooch

'Heavens Above' Sterling silver, 18ct gold, Blue Star Sapphire, reticulated, granulated and darkened 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 in an uncontrolled way. No two pieces can be the same. The granulation was applied before the cut out frame was soldered on and the piece trimmed to final shape. The gold was applied, then darkened in a heated sulphur solution, cleaned and the stone set.

Size,         45 x 30mm
