Leaf-shaped earrings with an incredibly intricate pattern of cutouts generated by a computer simulation of leaf venation. Reticulate means net-like and describes the complex, redundant branching patterns that govern the veins in leaves of flowering plants.
The pattern was grown in a computer simulation of leaf venation and etched from a sheet of stainless steel with stainless steel earwire.
