Enamelling Collection



Regardless of being the oldest of jewellery techniques enamelling still seduces its neophytes by the magical unpredictability of the final results.
Enamelling provides me with a fresh opportunity where my creative dreams come in colours.

Blue star earrings with grey pearl

Elegant pair of light blue star shaped earrings with small grey pearl in the centre of earrings.
The star was wax carved and cast in sterling silver, then fired up to 5 times in order to achieve a
smooth finish to the enamel.
Dark violet star earrings with garnet

Rather dramatic look for this sumptuous pair of earrings. Enamel of dark rich violet purple livened up
by shimmery pinkish orangey garnet. The star was wax carved and cast in sterling silver, then fired
up to 5 times in order to achieve a smooth finish to the enamel.

Enamelling

Nothing fascinates me as much as enamel painting because it allows me to tell  little stories. My favourites are of children and pets.
This necklace was inspired by our lovable shibainu dog Nanooki, who was a wonderful companion for all our growing up children.
He enjoyed children’s birthday parties, first of my son Lorin and later our niece Kira, happily receiving strokes and diligently
hoovering under the table trying to get whatever juicy morsel could be found. I painted here our Kira as a birthday girl
wearing a tutu skirt accompanied by a very much adoring her Nanooki. I set this miniature painting into a silver frame
with hammered little stars.  I knotted larimar beads offsetting the dreamy blue colours of the background of painting.
I made a clasp of two granulation stars to finish this necklace.
