How we create cloisonne enamel pieces
The pattern is made on a metal basis with thin Fine Silver or Gold wires which form the cloisons.
Enamel powder mixed with water and lay on the silver basis into the made cloisonne cells.
The item is put into the kiln, where the enamel melts at 800°C temperature. 3-4 layers are needed to achieve colour depth.
Lastly, jewellery is polished until its surface gets a glossy brilliant look.
"Enameling is such a complex, unpredictable and at the same time powerful tool for creativity which you can learn and experiment with all your life.
I am an artist, but I always wanted to make jewelry. Since making jewelry is a craft, only enamel, I think, makes jewelry craft to fine art.
