Angel's Wing n01
Size: 17” / Pendant: 1” x 1.5"

I first learned about metal reticulation from Mary Patterson, a favorite jeweler of mine from Dayton, OH. I was so enamored with the organic beauty yet individuality of the pieces that I ended up with a collection of reticulated jewelry from different artists from around the world. As I took up metalsmithing, reticulation became one of my favorite techniques.
I wore this piece to a baby shower. The future big sister took a look at it and said: Oh, angel’s wing! Since then, every time I look at it, I remember that wonderful time. Henceforth, the name: Angel’s Wing.
