Exploration is not for the faint of heart. Strong geometric lines are coupled with the unpredictable and organic flow of enamel. A necklace for those who want something out-of-the-ordinary.
Exploration » Enamel and Silver Necklace
- Sterling Silver
- Vitreous Enamel
- Copper (Does not come into contact with the skin)
- Hand fabricated sterling silver elements
- The surface effect on this piece was created with a technique called enameling. Enamel is a powdered glass that fuses to metal when fired at temperatures around 1500°F. When heated, the powder flows and hardens, becoming a smooth and vitreous surface.
- To create the colour effects in the glass I have layered transparent and opaque enamels through multiple firings. This gives the piece a depth that cannot be achieved with the use of only opaque enamels.
