Hibiscus Earrings

Hibiscus Earrings

Hibiscus Earrings are a cloisonne jewelry piece created by Patsy Croft. It belongs to a custom cloisonne collection of amazing enamel jewelry with unique jewelry designs.

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!

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 it’s beautiful personallity. The cells of enamel in this jewel are over filled giving the flower dimension. Like the flower is blooming right out of the surface.

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 be adhered together in metal smithing with solder. Enamels do not like solder. This is because solder contains other products than pure metals and enamels only like pure metal.

Along with this development in my style of cloisonne jewelry design, I give my clients a unique jewelry design to enjoy .

 

The accenting stones of these custom enamel earrings are the drops of rubies. Red is the clients color. You know red is the challenge of enamel colors to achieve. Beautiful Hibiscus Earrings in Cloisonné.
