Description

Burnt Orange Vitreous Enamel with 3 dark grey oxidised, silver free-form loops.

The main enamelled detail has been textured with punches that show through the rich, transparent, orange enamel.

The nature of the techniques used in making means each piece is unique and no two pieces are identical.

The enamel is gloss finished and the ancient technique of Basse-taille has been used with contemporary design.

Lots of movement when worn.


Enamel can be washed in warm soapy water if it becomes dirty. A little vaseline can be applied to all pieces to help enhance oxidisation and enamel colour. 

Vitreous enamel is glass and although pieces are fairly hardwearing, care should be taken not to apply force or scratch the surface. 

Oxidisation can wear off with silver dip, abrasion or household chemical e.g. bleach.
