Purple tourmaline (Sold!)
Purple tourmaline pendant, set in 14k yellowgold.
Made from 14K gold, using a technique called reticulation. Reticulation permits us to create unique textures in gold. It takes a deft hand on the torch to get the desired results. With reticulation you can texture a surface of gold. It produces a ridged or ripply surface through controlled heating. The ridges of a reticulated surface are more pronounced than any other surface treatment. You can never get the same result twice, so a piece is always unique.
Including 14k gold necklace
