This jewelry collection is made using the technique of enameling, which is the process of applying small granules of glass to a metal substrate and firing in a kiln at high temperatures, usually between 1,400 and 1,550 °F. ‘Vitreous enamel’ is a material created by fusing powdered glass to a substrate by firing. The glass melts and when cooled, hardens to a smooth and durable vitreous coating, in this case on steel, copper or fine silver. Depending on the design, the enamel has been etched to a soft matte finish.
Combining drawing and painting with texturing and patterning, using hammers, stamps and abrasives; these artisan earrings move gently, revealing different aspects of color and metal as they move.
