Steel Blue Cloisonne Enamel Earrings
Sleek steel blue transparent enamel has irregular fine silver flakes randomly embedded into multiple layers of enamel for a subtle sparkle. Opaque black and white enamel contained in fine silver cloisonne wires complete these modern earrings. Fine silver polka dots, like stars in a black sky, contrast with the bold geometric band of rectangles. Labor intensive and completely individually fabricated by the artist, these earrings begin with fine silver which is domed and shaped upon which the fine silver cloisonne wire is embedded. Many thin layers of imported vitreous enamel are applied and fired in a kiln, one by one. After many firings, hand finishing takes place which creates the smooth surface. After all of this, fine silver and sterling silver settings are fabricated, finally the enamel jewels are bezel set. Earwires are sterling silver. Total length including earwire is about 2.5 inches.
Though large in looks, these earrings only weigh approximately 8-10 grams each, a very comfortable weight.
These earrings are made to order, there will be slight variations; in a subtle way each pair will be one of a kind.
