From 22nd October to 24th October I have a stall at a craft fair in Goathland Village Hall. To avoid attempting to sell the same item twice i will be closing the shop each day. I hope to reopen it each evening. If there is an item you are particularly interested in while the shop is closed then let me know so I can 'put it aside and wait for you to get back to me (if it is still available).
This round pendant is 15mm in diameter. It is mounted on a 45cm, silver plated, curb chain that fastens with a simple bolt ring.
The picture of the two pekinese dogs is a transfer, The pigment in the ink used to make the transfer is enamel and I have fired to to the white base I have built up in the copper shape as another layer of enamel.
Your pendant will be sent boxed.
For UK delivery I use Royal Mail, first class, signed for; for european delivery, international signed for. If you prefer another delivery service please contact me.
The story of transfer enamels is the story of mass production. If you employ an artist to paint a picture to decorate the enamel item then your production process is slow, the artist is temperamental, so difficult to work with and keen to 'do his own thing'; the work[place is disrupted, the quality of the output is variable, technically and because the artist will be unable to exactly match each painting. Employing more artists only increases the variables as well as the costs. The answer is to employ one artist to paint one picture and then reproduce it as often as it is needed. Bad for the artist, good for the employer and less expensive for the customer. For me, transfers are an iteresting technical challenge; they easily burn out but it to be able to say I can do them.
