Thje focal of this necklace was created in the technique of cloisonne enamel, where fine silver wires are laid in outlines that are then filled with powdered glass and fired, layer by layer, also inside a kiln. For more on how cloisonné is created, check out this link where I walk you through the process in an IGTV. The process creates a painting in glass that reflects the light with an unmatched liveliness, and is considered a handmade gemstone. I’ve used 24ct gold foil to give the piece further sparkle and dimension. Check out the attached video to see how it catches the light.
The setting was fabricated using old school silversmithing techniques, to create a 3-D window into the scene.
