Sable Brown and Gold Cloisonne Earrings

Enameled Earrings

(ID: A89970)
Created by Jan Van Diver
One of a Kind
Deep sable brown kiln fired enamel with fine black shading and translucent white enamel, 24K gold cloisonne and 24K handcrafted gold granules and 24K gold flower centers. Hand fabricated enamels are mounted into hand fabricated silver and 14K gold settings. Bezels feature chiseled texture that creates extra sparkle. Sterling silver backs feature pierced designs repeating the foliate designs on fronts. 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.
