Granulation is a technique where a precious metal surface is covered in tiny granules.
It is thought to have its origins in the Middle East about 5,000 years ago.
Historically this technique is difficult and mysterious in the jewelry world. Ancient Greeks had young children place granules due to the extreme patience, dexterity and near perfect eyesight needed to place each granule onto the base of the metal being fused. The granules were extremely small and the designs were precise geometrical patterns.
Now, a more relaxed approach is less demanding and allows for more creativity.
