Description

Individually handmade using the ancient technique of enamelling - the main silver pendant is textured by hand using hammer and punches which can be seen above the glossy Blue-Grey enamel section. It  features an additional Blue-Grey side detail as well as some organic rings which add a good balance to the design. The colour is enhanced by the dark grey oxidised silver.

The main pendant measures 3.5 x 3.5cm                                           The chain has a 5cm/2" shorter option fastening link

Techniques used mean each piece is unique with no two pieces being exactly identical.

 


Enamel can be washed in warm soapy water, with a soft brush if it becomes discoloured. 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.

When not worn keep piece wrapped in acid free tissue paper (provided) to help prevent tarnishing.
