Announcement   Hello! My hand crafted enamel jewelry is the perfect pop of color to accessorize your wardrobe. My designs are inspired by retro atomic geometry. Custom colors are available for most designs! All purchases will arrive in an elegant jewelry gift bag with a ribbon :)

Use the Sections Menu to the left to navigate to view specific types of jewelry, collections and one of a kind pieces. I also make custom designed jewelry pieces. Contact me via conversations to discuss details.

I craft all the components of my designs by hand from copper and silver. I create my enamel designs by sifting multiple layers of pigmented vitreous glass powders over the copper or silver forms, then firing each piece individually in a kiln at 1500 degrees F (815 C). Each design typically involves 3 to 5 individual firings. More about the enamel process and my techniques is posted on my profile page.

I really love these versatile microdot earrings. Subtle pop of color is fun for everyday wear and I get tons of comments on them.

About

Enamel My World

I started designing and making jewelry in 1990 shortly after I graduated from college. At first I just wore my pieces, but friends and co-workers encouraged me to sell my designs and before long I had a new career.

My passion for glass led me to the enameling process and soon I began to take metalsmithing classes as well. In 1998 I established my own metal jewelry and enameling studio in Chicago called Fabrications. I currently teach the art of enameling at Lillstreet Art Center in Chicago.

I've sold many pieces over the years at various art fairs and festivals, as well as on the web. Until recently, I've never had a bricks and mortar store of my own, but when I opened my Etsy shop in August 2006, it felt like my designs finally had a home.

2016 began a new chapter in my jewelry making career. I am now one half of the dynamic duo, Laskey + Lenart Jewelry Studio. I am proud to be co-owner of a bricks and mortar shop in Chicago which is dedicated to the jewelry created by myself and my fellow jewelry designer Sara Lenart. Come visit us in person at 3823 N. Lincoln Avenue.

Additional policies and FAQs
ENAMEL INFORMATION AND CARE: Enamel is a form of glass fused to metal and is safe to wear without irritating the skin. Because the base is metal (copper or silver) it is much more durable than glass on its own. However, chipping or cracking can occur if it is dropped, so it should be treated with care when handling it.

To clean enamel jewelry or dishes, use a soft cloth and wipe clean, use mild soap if needed. DO NOT use a dishwasher or anything abrasive to clean the enamel surface. Enamels should avoid contact with strong chemicals and certain acidic foods (such as citrus). Exposed copper on the back of enamel dishes can be cleaned with mild commercial metal polishes such as Brasso or Penny Brite.
