Cloisonne Jewelry – Athena Enamel Earrings – Award Winning
“This elegant construction exemplifies everything that makes Cloisonné enamel jewelry special. The materials chosen, high karat gold and garnet, are rich with the warm tones, deep shine, and understood rarity that makes any object desirable. The composition contains numerous circular references through the overall disk, the cone-shaped stones, and the groupings of spheres around the perimeter. Achieving all this in a compact object, and then making that object a functioning accessory for adornment is at the center of the jeweler’s art. In the end, or perhaps it is the first thing, this jewelry is wonderful to behold.”
