Surface texturing

Has anyone seen jewelry pieces that have a textured appearance that looks like its rough with tiny pieces of metal? Usually silver and gold. I’d love to know how to achieve this look

Do you have a picture?

When I make a texture like that I paint ‘Handy Flux’ onto the surface area I wish to cover. Then I put silver filings in a tea strainer and lightly sprinkle all over the surface. Gently tap off the extra filings onto paper. They only stick where the flux is. Then I fuse onto the surface. It is a bit like using enamels.


This is a texture that I apply to a lot of my pendants and earrings. It is done with a hammer piece and very hard and sharp insert. It is kind of like tattooing.
