Art Deco Petal Earrings

Enameled Earrings

(ID: A74429)
Created by Jan Van Diver
One of a Kind
Opaque coral and black enamel and translucent white enamel contained within 24K gold cloisonne wire designs are reminiscent of the art deco period. The geometric shapes contrast with the curving floral motifs which have centers with 24K gold granules. The triangular enamels on fine silver are set into fine and sterling silver settings with 14K gold accents at top and attached to sterling silver ear wires.

The artist uses tiny tweezers and other miniature tools to coax hand rolled wires into shapes. Once they are fused into place, she applies enamel with a fine sable brush and a spatula, a few grains thick, in extremely thin layers. Each layer is fired in a kiln, then built upon, layer by layer. Thin layering is essential to obtain clarity of the enamel. Once this is done, she hand grinds and polishes the surface, then fabricates settings, and sets the enamel into bezels like gemstones.
