Touched by a magic wand

Under the fire of a torch, silver begins to melt and fuse like shining water... and its final form and texture depend on the moment when I remove the heat. One second, I have a small, flowing river; the next, it has suddenly fallen asleep in midstream. Frozen, but not with ice, it is suspended in motion as though touched by a magic wand."
THAT is "reticulation" for me! It is one of the most unpredictable techniques in making jewelry – thus one of the most exciting.
