This statement necklace is made with blue and grey glass enamel on fine sliver. It is accented with large areas of 24k gold foil under clear enamel. This piece was made with an ancient technique called cloisonne (see description below). All of my cloisonné pieces are one of a kind. They are unique creations made completely by hand by me in my studio in Cleveland Ohio.

This Gorgeous pendent was created with a process called cloisonné. A layer of clear glass enamel is applied to a domed fine silver circle. Then I apply tiny fine silver wires to the dome. Each wire has to follow the curve of the dome, and lie perfectly on the glass before I fire it and fuse the wires to the fine silver. I apply 24kt and fine silver foil to certain parts of the design. I fill each part of the design with different colors of enamel. Before I fire it, the enamel looks like sand. It is glass that has been ground very fine. I have to apply several layers of glass (at least 7) firing each one. This allows the glass to be as clear as possible, and it prevents impurities and cracking. After I’ve applied all the layers of glass I grind all the high spots of the enamel down so it is smooth. Then I have to fire it again. Next I hand sand the enamel. This is how it gets the final matte and smooth finish. I start with an 80 grit sanding block and go all the way down to a 1500 grit sanding block. This process usually takes many hours to complete. Then I hand make all the metalwork that holds the enamel. I take great care to reflect the feel of the piece onto the back.
