Collection: Water Collection - Water Top Wire Band Rings

"Water Collection"

THE INSPIRATION OF THIS LINE IS THE “WATERY” SURFACE TEXTUREAND AMORPHOUS SHAPES THAT OCCUR DURING THE ANCIENT TECHNIQUE OF RETICULATION. I CUSTOM BLEND MY OWN SILVER ANDCOPPER ALLOYS THEN RAISE A FINE SILVER “SKIN” ON THE METAL SURFACE WHICH ALLOWS THE INSIDE TO FLOW IN A MOLTEN STATE. THE FINE SILVER OUTER LAYER CAPTURES THE LIQUID METAL PATTERNS CREATED DURING CAREFULLY APPLIED TORCH TECHNIQUES.  I THEN EMPLOY SILVERSMITHING TECHNIQUES TO FORM THEM INTO INDIVIDUALLY UNIQUE PIECES OF JEWELRY.  THIS TECHNIQUE HAS THE ADDED BENEFIT OF LEAVING A TARNISH RESISTANT TEXTURED FINE SILVER SURFACE WHOSE BEAUTY IS ONLY ENHANCED AS THE PIECE BEGINS TO SLOWLY OXIDIZE IN THE ATMOSPHERE.  EACH PIECE IS TRULY A UNIQUE RESULT OF THE COMBINATION OF ALLYSON’S ARTISTIC VISION AND THE ELEMENTAL REACTIONS SHE CREATES IN HER STUDIO.
