As an enamel jewelry artist, I love making custom enamel jewels! And these enamel earrings are my favorite style of cloisonné jewelry.
You wonder why? Yes? Well, let me tell you a little about the technique of enameling.
First, an enameled jewel has to be enameled on both sides of the metal an artist chooses to work on. So why not make both sides filled with cloisonné, beautiful and unique!
Second, take a look at these earrings. My design represents a flower opening on the front of the jewel with stamens of gold. On the opposite side of the jewel, the flower is open, showing off its beautiful personality. The cells of enamel in this jewel are overfilled giving the flower dimension. Like the flower is blooming right out of the surface.
Third, this design of cloisonné earrings took me several years of experimenting. My desire was to create a jewel with no solder. All parts of jewelry have to adhere together in metalsmithing with solder. Enamels do not like solder. This is because solder contains other products than pure metals and enamels only like pure metal.
And last, along with this development in my style of cloisonne jewelry design, I give my clients a unique jewelry design to enjoy.
