My oldest son recently went on a road trip with friends from graduate school. They did it the traditional college student way....by the seat of their pants, crammed into rental cars and hotel rooms without enough beds to go around, not enough sleep and a tad too much fun. I was envious. How fun to be young with time to set aside the cares of daily living for a while and just ramble. My kids are inspiring in so many ways....this cloisonne is just one.

Enamel is vitreous glass fused to metal. Cloisonne is a style of enameling that uses gold or silver wire to create the outlines of the design. This is a ready to wear piece of jewelry. Dimensions are 1 3/8 inch tall by 2 3/4 inch wide. It is made with a fine silver base that has been roller printed and then domed in a press. The shape is then cut out and highly polished on a lathe. The enamels used are Japanese Ninomiya enamels. The design is meant to be simple, colorful and cheerful. A piece this size typically takes me about 15-18 hours of work as each layer of enamels is painstakingly laid in by brush and then fired. A setting is then custom constructed to hold the enamel. Going slowly and working in thin layers insures the brilliance of the colors. It is hard to capture the sparkle in a photograph, but it's there! This pendant has been antiqued for a subtle patina. The piece can also be worn as a brooch by removing the chain. The chain included is an 18" sterling silver rolo chain.
