Necklaces / Pendants by caroline finlay Individually handmade using the ancient technique of enamelling. The silver has been textured and transparent enamel applied which shows the pattern beneath. The main pendant is deep blue which contrasts well with the burnt orange side detail. The silver is oxidised in a dark grey finish. The main pendant measures 3.5 x 3.5cm. Techniques used mean each piece is unique with no two pieces exactly alike.

A little vaseline can be applied to all pieces to help enhance oxidisation and enamel colour.

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