View Full Version : Will gold reticulate?

I have achieved some really nice results with silver granulation this past week and made three new pendants, one has just sold - happy me. I have never read or seen pics or vids of granulation of gold. I appreciate that it is a random event, but will gold granulate?

Look at the jewellery of Gerda Flockinger - she has been using gold granulation and reticulation since the 1960s

She made some fantastic pieces. Is she still alive?

I think there's an article on Ganoksin about it - I'll look when I have a keyboard in front of me.
