Fusion Collection is made using special glass fired in a kiln which gives me the opportunity to make pieces in brighter more colourful hues and I have some control over the shapes that I use.
As with the Beach Collection, I use Sterling Silver and Argentium Silver* mounts, chains and wires, but also cotton cord or leather.
*Argentium Silver is an alloy that has a brighter shine than Sterling Silver. At 935 Argentium is purer than 925 Sterling Silver. Made with added Germanium it contains less copper than Sterling Silver and is highly tarnish resistant and therefore requires less polishing. Argentium is also hypoallergenic making it great for those who have an allergy to traditional Sterling Silver. Argentium is made from 100% recycled silver which makes it even more worthwhile to use. Where I have used Argentium I will make reference to it in the piece’s description.
