  • Priced and sold individually
  • Indonesian silver completely covered with granulation
  • The skill involved in making these beads continues to amaze me. Molten silver is dropped onto a surface where it splatters into tiny droplets. These are sieved and sorted by size, then the tiny "granules" are soldered onto the beads. This requires extraordinary hand-eye coordination, as well as careful control of the temperature. If the flame gets to hot, the work is instantly ruined.
