A half-round Argentium 935 silver wire is chosen, measured, and sawn by hand. Hand hammering imparts the lovely dimpled texture covering the surface. Formed and then soldered finished with a dark patina that will enhance over time by design through the natural wear process. The edges have been hand polished to add dimension. A final seal of artisan microcrystalline wax has been used. Mild soap and water to clean gently.
