Granulation is becoming a really popular technique among jewellers, it's a great chance to experiment with detailed designs and texture.
This ancient technique has now taken a modern approach and we can't wait to share some with you in this post!
Granulation is the technique of applying tiny spheres or granules of metal onto a surface such as a piece of jewellery.
Take a look at some of our favourite customer designs, using granulation below...
Sophie Cunliffe Jewellery - "I love that it's absolutely unique to every piece, and the processes involved in granulation are so experimental to the maker, it's so therapeutic forming granules. I really do love granulation!"
When Caitie Met Soda - "granulation has and always will make me think of tiny comets showering across the sky."
Ula Jewellery - "I use leftover silver to make a piece a little quirky. It’s a great way to cut down on wasted silver. The little balls on this ring represent family members."
Saffron Dilly's stunning turquoise gemstone and granulated jewellery rings.
When Caitie Met Soda - " She’s lovingly handcrafted from a dream to reality. The dreamiest 12mm blue goldstone set in sterling silver with love. Six solid 9ct gold comets dance around her edges, as she hangs from the most beautifully delicate 18” Sterling Silver ball chain."
Knotted Rose Jewellery - "I love granulation, not only do I find making the tiny granules therapeutic but it's a fantastic way to use up silver that can often be discarded. It also adds amazing delicate texture to designs."
Lyn Eales - "Sterling silver & green aventurine with gold granulation."
Debonair Creations - "This was my first attempt at granulation a few days ago and it was so fun. I love the way the balls tell you where they want to go."
