Cobalt Blue Angel Wing Pendant–Cloisonné & Champlevé Enamels on Fine Silver

The texture and shading in the feathers really gives this pendant a three-dimensional quality.  You can wear this pendant for any occasion- pair it with a simple T-shirt for every day, and it also would look stunning worn with a black evening dress!  Either way, the Angel Wing is a wonderful simple of hope and rebirth.

Did you know that enamels are melted glass?  

Yes!  It's true...  To create this lovely pair of earrings, I first fabricated the silver base out of sheets of fine silver.  The lines of the design are actually fine silver wires that I meticulously bent by hand (and tweezers) into the shapes you see.  Then I placed granules of ground up glass (enamels) in between the wires and melted them in the kiln.  There are as many as 20 layers of glass in each individual piece!  After I've added all the layers of glass, I carefully grind and polish it until it sparkles!

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Champlevé: pronounced Shamp-lee-VAY
is the process of inlaying the colored glass enamels directly into a solid piece of silver, so there’s no need for a separate setting.

Cloisonné: pronounced Cloy-ZEE-nay! (always best when said with a flourish!) 
is the process of using delicate silver or gold wires to create drawing lines that separate the different bits of colored enamel.

ABOUT ME

Enamels are my passion.

I was born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio. I graduated from Rhode Island School of Design in 1992 with a degree in illustration. I currently reside in Raleigh, North Carolina and have a wonderful studio at Artspace.

Before becoming involved in jewelry crafting, I spent many years making designs in leaded glass. I was an active member of the Ant farm, a local artists cooperative for several years, and currently have a studio at Artspace in downtown Raleigh.

I have always loved incorporating bright color and light into my work, so when I discovered the beauty of cloisonné enamel, I was hooked. My work incorporates color, light, and balance- be it abstract or figurative. I'm influenced by all the gorgeous jewelry of the past, but try to give it a modern twist.

I love crafting beautiful objects to wear and adore, and I hope you will enjoy owning them as much as I enjoy making them. If you are interested in commissioning a unique piece of wearable art, please feel free to contact me.
