Starting with a fresh clean sheet of Argentium 935 silver, the Fleur is hand-sawn out and formed to fit into each other. Hand hammering imparts the dimples effect that will be highlighted by the darkening of the patina process. The design is allowing for a natural wearing of the antique finish.
After soldering and clean-up 18kt gold wire is cut to size to form rings and/or embellishments to be soldered for the piece. Edges have been given a broken line and polished to a shine for dimension. Final process using a microcrystalline wax to create a seal to the finish.
