Cloisonne Jewelry piece – Enameled in Cloisonne Set in 22k Gold and Sterling Silver Back Tear Spessaratite Tourmaline.
I lived most of her life in a tropical setting, and when she realized that the Bird of Paradise was her favorite flower, she knew she had to capture it in gold, silver and enamel, and create a stunning piece of enamel jewelry. Using sterling silver for the background, she carefully applied 22k gold wire to draw her flower outline, making this unique gold jewelry. Then with transparent vitreous enamel she painted in the layers of beautiful color, creating her unique jewelry design that is seen no where else. The fine layers of greens capture the depth of the tropical forest where this flower thrives. The background layers of peaches reflect the warm sunsets only seen in these lush settings. Oranges and blues fill up the petal components of this cloisonné jewelry, mirroring the shape of a tropical bird in flight. Delicately below the enameled jewel lies a teardrop Spessartite Tourmaline which catches your eye and balances the gorgeous enamel colors. The whole metal canvas vibrates warmth, beauty, thoughtfulness and joy. The ability to capture the wild in jewels is what sets my art apart as a fine gold enamel jewelry goldsmith. This is one of a kind custom enamel jewelry.
This pendant measures 1.25” x 1.5”.
